La insuficiencia suprarrenal relativa es frecuente en pacientes cirróticos estables que presentan un mayor deterioro de la función hepática.


La insuficiencia suprarrenal relativa es frecuente en pacientes cirróticos estables que presentan un mayor deterioro de la función hepática, debiendo ser considerado como complicación de la enfermedad debido a la disminución en la supervivencia de los pacientes que presentan este trastorno endocrino. Por otra parte, debe considerarse el cortisol salival como una alternativa en el diagnóstico, ya que existe correación entre sus niveles con los del cortisol plasmático basal.
