Kit Emergência

We are bringing a reality that was very far from us: the emergency kit.

 

In several countries this kit already exists because an Adrenal Insufficiency crisis can be fatal.

And what is the reality of patients with AI and CAH today in Brazil? Was feeling sick? Have to go to

Emergency Room to receive injectable hydrocortisone.

The reality in other countries is that exhausted treatment options at home

apply injectable hydrocortisone and go to the emergency room

gaining more chance of life!

In pandemic times, this action is necessary to save lives!

That reality today has changed. Order your emergency kit.

Using your Emergency Kit

Do not use your emergency kit until you have doubled or tripled your corticosteroid dose.

 

Preparing the emergency kit is something that every person with Adrenal Insufficiency or Adrenal Hyperplasia should do when they have a diagnosis.

Contact Information

Follow the instructions below.

Hazard signs include:

  • Extreme weakness, malaise, vomiting, headache
