🎤 Interview Archive with Karen N, Cyclical Cushing’s

 

Karen (Rooon55), February 21, 2008. Karen’s disease started when she was a little girl (7) and she finally got a diagnosis in 2005. She had cycling Cushing’s, Thyroid disease, GH deficiency, and Autoimmune Alopecia. She believes she is cured after two Pituitary surgeries.

A doctor didn’t advise Vermont’s Karen Nolan (Rooon on the boards) that she might be one of the scant 3.5 per million people diagnosed annually with Cushing’s disease – another Cushing’s patient did.
