Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 113, September 2013


Welcome to the autumn 2013 newsletter. This issue features some of the early findings from our online emergency questionnaire. As you will see, we are aiming to share the survey findings with health practitioners and policy makers, in a constructive dialogue to help our members manage their steroid-dependence as well as possible.
