A more common type of Adrenal Insufficiency is Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency which happens when the pituitary gland, a small gland at the base of the brain does not make enough hormone ACTH and as a result adrenal glands decrease cortisol production. Unlike patients with Addison’s disease, patients with Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency do not develop darkening of the skin, salt craving, high potassium levels.
