Webinar on Dr. Friedman’s views on the Pituitary Society “Consensus” Guidelines on Cushing’s disease and new Cushing’s medicines

Although Dr. Friedman is at the forefront of Cushing’s Disease, he was not invited to be part of the Pituitary Society Consensus Guidelines on Cushing’s Disease published in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology in 2021, many of his ideas on Cushing’s Disease that he has been advocating for years were included in the recent guidelines.

  2. The need for multiple testing to diagnose episodic Cushing’s Disease
  3. The importance of UFC and salivary cortisol testing
  4. The use of medication trial prior to surgery
  5. The use of ketoconazole for the medication trial and longer-term treatment
  6. Dr. Friedman will also discuss new Cushing’s medications.
