2 weeks ago tonight we lost our 2 year old son Joshua to undiagnosed Addison's Disease. (the autopsy gave us the diagnosis) He had very unusual tan skin (with no tan lines) for about 1 year and I couldn't get anyone to take my concern seriously since this was his only obvious syptom. Through persistance I finally got a referral to see a pediatric endocronologist. The appointment will be in another 2 weeks. (I think I may show up to the appt. with pictures of my son Joshua). He was amazing adorable boy. I had no idea that a fever with vomiting would suddenly kill him. We are at a loss. Our Doctor's say Addison's is very rare in toddlers and that is why they didn't take his tan skin as a sign of Addison's.
