Abstract

We found a significant proportion of our patients having a subnormal cortisol response independent of the presence of anti-adrenal cell antibodies. We did not find a correlation with metabolic control, probably due to the good metabolic control of this group. The absence of 21OHA does not rule out subclinical hypocortisolism in this population. Our results suggest testing adrenal function in children with DM1.
