For the 60th Pod we have a treat, not one but two Professors join Brian and myself in the studio. This week we talk to Hattie Syme, Professor of internal medicine and David Church, Deputy Principal here at the RVC about treating patients with hypoadrenocorticism. The initial therapy and the transitional therapy. It is all about supplementing with mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids. Now there might be differing views on which medications to use. This all came about from a conversation with them both on the clinic floor and thought that a slight contrast in views would be good for you to hear.
You could have a look at what is written about therapies prior to listening http://www.msdvetmanual.com/endocrine-system/the-adrenal-glands/hypoadrenocorticism#v3271580
