Jenni: Cataracts?
My daughter is 21 and has classic/salt-wasting.  She has been on medrol for about 4 years and was just diagnosed with cataracts.  The physician said they are due to her steroids.  I had never heard of this being a possibility and wondering if there are others who have developed cataracts?

Craig: Health Coverage?
So I guess my question is this... Is there any coverage out there for CAH? When I grew up in Nevada I was covered by the state as a child. I’ve tried doing research but haven’t found much of anything. Has anyone else found anything similar to this for adults? I’m going on 20 now and I’m starting to feel like it’s time for me to leave my parents, seeing as how they’ve got their own plans and we’re all needing our space...
