Endocrine disorders occur when the body's homeostasis is disturbed due to an imbalance in hormones. This occurs when a gland produces either too little or too much of a specific hormone or when lesions growing within the endocrine system impact hormone levels.
Addison’s disease is a rare endocrine disease. In Addison’s disease, the adrenal glands are attacked and damaged by the immune system, making it an autoimmune disease. This leads to inadequate levels of the steroids cortisol and aldosterone and causes adrenal insufficiency. While early-stage symptoms might begin mild and could be confused for other health issues, more severe symptoms such as fainting, exhaustion, and cramps occur over time. If the levels of cortisol and aldosterone drop too low, this can lead to an Addisonian crisis - a life-threatening condition, which can be triggered by severe physical stress or an infection. It is a medical emergency and can be fatal if left untreated.
Addison’s disease typically affects genetically predisposed individuals between the ages of 30 and 50. It is often unknown how the onset of the disease was triggered, however, it can follow tuberculosis, sepsis, or certain medications. Addison's disease diagnosis is performed by blood and urine tests, as well as medical imaging.
As a rare disease, Addison's affects a relatively small number of individuals and it can be difficult to obtain high-quality research materials from affected patients. At Central BioHub, we recognize the importance of sourcing serum and plasma samples from selected Addison's disease patients. We provide a seamless online ordering process, allowing researchers worldwide to easily browse our inventory of Addison's disease samples. With our user-friendly website and advanced search filters, you can quickly identify specific samples that meet your research requirements.
