I have been on Prednisolone for just over 2 years and now I have tapered off them. I still feel fatigue during the day , which I thought was pretty normal for someone with WG in remission. The renal unit now want me to take a short "Synacthen test" to determine whether my adrenals are functioning as normal again. But what I am wondering is, if your adrenals are NOT functioning as they should, is there anything at all they can do about it?
I have never heard this Synacthen test mentioned on any WG forum before ( it's generally associated with Addison's disease) so I am wondering how routine it is within the NHS for the treatment of vasculitis, and what people's experiences have been. Thank you.
