I was diagnosed in April 2016 with Cushing Disease caused by a pituitarty adenoma. I believe I have struggled with these syptoms for over a decade.

I had a goiter removed from my thyroid in 1997 and have had numours biopsys on other nodules on my thyriod over the years.

Fortunately, I changed doctors and walk into Dr. Levetan office in Chestnut Hill Hopital. The discovery of my high cotisal levels, many tests, MRIs and a cat scan confirmed my diagnonis. She gave me many answers to different symptoms I have been struggling with that seem to be worse by the day.

In May, I met with Dr. Salvatori at John Hopkins and I am scheduled for surgery 8/10/2016.
