In this lecture, Professor Zach Murphy will present on Adrenal Insufficiency. We will discuss the pathophysiology, including the inadequate production of adrenal hormones such as cortisol and aldosterone, which can be due to primary adrenal failure (Addison's disease) or secondary causes affecting the pituitary. The lecture will include a discussion on the clinical manifestations, such as fatigue, muscle weakness, weight loss, and electrolyte imbalances. The digital presentation will begin with the diagnostic approach, highlighting the importance of serum cortisol levels, ACTH stimulation tests, and imaging studies to assess adrenal and pituitary glands. Finally, we will review management strategies for Adrenal Insufficiency, emphasizing hormone replacement therapy to restore hormone levels and manage symptoms. Enjoy the lecture and support us below!
