As you know, CAH is an inherited genetic disorder that affects the adrenal glands. Those with CAH lack one of the enzymes that the adrenal glands use to produce hormones that regulate metabolism, the immune system, blood pressure, and other essential functions. This can cause a number of symptoms, including accelerated puberty, infertility, and low blood pressure.
Having lived with CAH since birth, you also know how challenging it can be to manage everyday life in addition to this complicated condition. While there is currently no cure for CAH, treatment can help most people lead a normal life. If you’re interested in helping researchers discover a different way to help people with CAH, the CAHlibrate Study may be of interest to you.
