The body doesn't secrete hydrocortisone the same way a pill, injection, IV, or other 'external' delivery system does. That, thought University of Bristol researchers, doesn't make sense.
So they did what health scientists do: They took 10 years and developed a new type of hydrocortisone-replacement therapy called "Pulsatility."
It's "designed to deliver standard hydrocortisone replacement to patients via a pump that replicates more closely cortisol’s natural rhythmic secretion pattern."
It's not just in the lab — they've started trials on the subcutaneous pump and so far it's "revealed promising results."
If you're familiar with British understatement, that probably means patients were cured of everything that ails them, grew taller and better looking, and gained 12 IQ points. But we'll settle for "This could be in the real world in a few years."
