Hi I just wanted to post some good news (for a change) that my son’s adrenal function appears to have recovered. It was damaged by combination of high dose inhaled Seretide, repeated prednisolone courses and for good measure steroid injections. Around the time of adrenal insufficiency positive blood test he switched to Symbicort and finally started Xolair which has worked brilliantly for asthma recovery. He hasn’t had any prednisolone since November and rarely takes extra puff of Symbicort. It’s hard to say how long it took for adrenals to recover but around 6-7 months. I didn’t believe it at first as he still has stomach pains and headaches periodically which are also symptoms of adrenal insufficiency. Seems he may have a kind of irritable bowel syndrome. Another condition for me to investigate but at least you can’t die from it as far as I know!
Anyone else got both asthma and irritable bowel? Anything work for the latter? Peppermint oil. Can’t face food exclusions as done wheat and milk in the past with no effect. Guess I need to post on a ‘gut’ site too!
