----- Comment added to Karen Nolan, Cyclic Cushing’s, part 2
By MaryO

I’ve been told they are unable to determine how long someone has had cushings. How did you know it started at 7? I think mine started at 9 but they don’t know. Also how were you diagnosed with GH defincency? My endo mentioned they might test me. Just curious what tests are involved.
