19 February 2018

​By Allah's Grace, the internal medicine consultant of King Khaled Hospital – Hafr al-Batin, during his regular visits to consultation clinics of the region's health centers, has successfully diagnosed a patient in his 30s, who was suffering from weight loss, dark skin, physical weakness, dizziness and  unconsciousness.

After due medical checkups and tests, he was diagnosed with adrenal failure, as his adrenal glands did not produce enough of the adrenal hormone (cortisone). So, he was given some medications to supplement the insufficient hormone. He was also put under observation until he improved, became normal and restored his natural skin color.​
