What treatment is available for CAH?
Right now, there is no cure for CAH, but there is treatment. Your doctor will prescribe a form of cortisol that will need to be taken every day. The goal of treatment is to get the hormones to a normal level. Extra cortisol may need to be taken during times of stress, such as surgery.
