Jennifer C's Story...

I was diagnosed with Cushings Disease on April 3, 2007 just 5 short months after giving birth to my first child. My symptoms started almost immediately after I gave birth on November 8, 2006 - luckily my internist after listening to my symptoms decided to test for Cushings.

When I had a slightly elevated free cortisol and a "borderline" salivary test he referred me to an Endo. After a few more positive tests we did an MRI and found a 4 mm pituitary adenoma. I had the IPSS done which confirmed that the adenoma is the cause of my Cushings.

I have an appointment with a Neurosurgeon on April 30, 2007 and we'll schedule surgery at that time.
