Brief Summary:
Inhaled corticosteroids are largely used in patients with asthma or chronic obstructive lung diseases. The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of inhaled corticosteroids is associated with suppression of endogenous cortisol production, as seen in patients treated with pharmacologic doses of oral or parenteral steroids.

Condition or disease
Adrenal Insufficiency

Detailed Description:
The normalcy of the hypothalmic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis of enrolled subjects will be assessed by low dose (1mcg) corticotropin (ACTH)stimulation test. Serum cortisol levels will be measured before , 30 minutes and 60 minutes after 1 mcg ACTH intravenous injection.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 50 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Low Dose(1mcg) ACTH Stimulation Test for Assessment of the Hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal Axis in Patients Treated With Inhaled Busedonide or Fluticasone.
Study Start Date : May 2007
