Laboratory exams show signs of adrenal insufficiency hypoglycemia, hyponatremia and elevated natriuresis, hyperkaliemia, hemoconcentration, hypochloremic metabolic acidosis and functional renal failure confirmed by hypocortisolemia, increased ACTH, and an insufficient response to rapid ACTH stimulation testing that leads to the diagnosis of absolute and peripheral AAI.
