what's PM mean?

addisons is when the adrenal glands shut down and their bodies don't have the ability to control/proudce hormones, adrenalin, sodium, etc. etc. etc. once they shut down, they never "turn back on" agian so he's on prednisione every other day and hopefully will live a long relatively healthy life thanks to his medicaiton. i am having difficulty trying to figure out the level of activity he can handle, drops in energy before his next procortin shot, etc. etc. would love to talk to anyone who has a hav. with this condition.

Oops, it wasn't my GS that had addisons. My GS had cushings. My daughter's Dachsie was diagnosed with addisons. They put him on prednisone, his sympstoms went away, and he has been fine sine. That was about 1-1/2 yrs ago.
