Addison's disease may be complicated by hypertension and less commonly by heart failure. We review the pathophysiology of the renin‐angiotensin‐aldosterone axis in Addison's disease and how this is altered in the setting of hypertension and heart failure. An essential first step in management in both conditions is optimizing glucocorticoid replacement and considering dose reduction if excessive. Following this, if a patient with Addison's disease remains hypertensive, the fludrocortisone dose… Expand
