Can You Help?

I think I have Cushing’s I have about 10 symptoms…my cortisol levels came out high with a 24 hour urine hormone panel but my endocrinologist did not even mention it. At the time when I had the test done, (March 2020)I had no idea what cortisol was. I just figured and trusted my endocrinologist would prescribe me with whatever hormones and or treatment I needed and would have me take whatever tests he order. Anyhow, in a range from 1-10 for bedtime cortisol, my result was 27! Cortisol metabolites, range from 1160-2183, my result was 5370!!!

The only reason I started to do more research on cortisol is because just a few weeks ago I started experiencing severe chest pain from the moment I wake up and any little thing stresses me out and gives me anxiety and I feel like I’m gonna have a heart attack any moment!  So I looked back at my paperwork and noticed these really elevated cortisol levels. But my endocrinologist never mention them… Why? This is how I found this disease,  I have so many symptoms of Cushing’s disease, And it is not a result of exogenous stuff causing cortisol levels to rise. I don’t take any medication whatsoever and was not taking any medication at that time or for the past year. All I have taken for the past year is what he prescribed, thyroid medication and progesterone. Someone please tell me if these levels are of concern from your perspective.

Please respond here or on the message boards.

Thanks!

❓What Do *You* Think?

This came up in the comments to https://cushingsbios.com/2018/11/17/jayne-in-the-media/

The question is

I dropped by this site because my friend’s daughter has Cushings and I wanted to learn more. Is there any chance that Cushings might be manageable or improvable in a way similar to what Izabella Wentz proposes for Hashimotos?

What do you think?
