National Adrenal Disease Foundation

The National Adrenal Diseases Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the adrenal disease community. NADF’s mission is to inform, educate, and support those with adrenal disease and their families to improve their quality of life. NADF’s goals are to stop death from undiagnosed adrenal insufficiency; improve life quality of those who suffer from adrenal disease, and to promote the study of adrenal disease to improve treatment and find cures.

As a result of the dedication of the NADF Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers, those with adrenal insufficiency have a highly respected resource to find life-preserving information and treatment guidance approved by esteemed medical advisors.  Those who are newly diagnosed look to NADF for information from one of its “Facts You Need to Know” pamphlets in addition to a tremendous array of information provided to all adrenal disease patients. A robust program of support groups is led by volunteers who help share information and provide support to patients across the US. More information can be found on the NADF website:

Support Resources: NADF provides patient advocacy via phone, email or mail and offers support and answers questions. Medical advisors are on call to help with additional guidance as needed. Adrenal patients can contact NADF in a number of ways:

  1. via the website at

  3. emailing to [email protected]

NADF support group leaders live in states across the U.S. and are trained to facilitate meetings and help share important information with community members. You can find and reach out to your local Support Group Leader here.
