Addisonians & Swine Flu
Unlike the common cold, influenza is a serious disease that can result in severe complications, such as pneumonia, and even death.
Just like regular yearly influenza, swine flu can have major effects on all people with chronic diseases. Those of us with Adrenal insufficiency may require stress dosing if we contract the flu.
If you have any symptoms of influenza; such as high fever, body aches, and coughing, contact your doctor immediately.
Prevention is key - wash your hands frequently with soap and water and carry sanitizing handwipes or cleanser. Also, avoid people who seem sick.
