❓Guest Question: Can you have Cushing’s with Normal Cortisol Levels?

 

Kenz asked:

I got my lab work done.

I have all the symptoms of cushing’s Disease, from the buffalo hump and obesity to the easy bruising and the muscle weakness.

My cortisol levels came back normal, and I haven’t gotten the results of my ACTH yet.

Has anyone had normal cortisol levels come back and still had cushing’s Disease?
