The purpose of replacement therapy in Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) is mimicking endogenous cortisol levels as closely as possible: dual release hydrocortisone (DR-HC) has been introduced to replicate the circadian cortisol rhythm. Multiple daily saliva collections could be used to assess the cortisol rhythm during real-life: our aim was to study the salivary cortisol profile in AI.

Abstract

The purpose of replacement therapy in Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) is mimicking endogenous cortisol levels as closely as possible: dual release hydrocortisone (DR-HC) has been introduced to replicate the circadian cortisol rhythm. Multiple daily saliva collections could be used to assess the cortisol rhythm during real-life: our aim was to study the salivary cortisol profile in AI.
