I am a 37 year old woman, who has been exhibiting most of the symptoms of Cushing’s for a least 7 years.
My family doctor treated each of my symptoms individually or told me I just needed to lose weight., It wasn’t until recently ( when i was diagnosed wth diabetes type 2, an underactive thyroid, high blood pressure, and kidney distress) that i insisted he look into my endocrine system.
It didn’t seem plausible that all that would occur and my endo system to be ok. I also have been diagnosed with severe depression and severe generalized anxiety disorder.
I have completed the UFC test and was told my cortisol levels are extremely high. I am currently awaiting an appointment with an endo in my area and am positive Cushings will be detected. In the mean time I am just looking to meet other people with the same issues I am having.
I was referred her from facebook. Thank you!
