    Dr. Friedman Interviews

    Thank you for doing this chat. I could tell by the area code of one callers that there is yet another Cushie in my area. So sad.
  2. Hi gumdrop, I tried to message you but it said you are unable to receive them. Hope to hear from you about docs in New York....

  3. I didn't see Dr. Fahey. I see Dr F in Los Angeles.

  4. This is sofie, my message below got chopped off in the beginning..my question was..how was your experience with Dr. Fahey in NYC?

  5. I also live in the NYC area and have been endo shopping, well at least one who will keep testing me for cushings and to not dismiss my symptoms like all the others.

    Please let me know how you liked this doctor and if he was helpful with testing for cushings.

    Thanks so much,


  6. If a person is cured/has a remission from Cushings and ALL hormones are balanced, then why don't many people see a return of their libido? Could it possibly be a neurotransmitter deficiency?
  7. I'd like to hear more about rest tissue and NP59. Is rest tissue in the adrenal bed typically cause by the surgeon not removing all of the gland or does it grow back? Anything about cortisol pumps?
  8. I am so grateful to have found this board and both of you,



  9. Hi Christy -

    Questions for Dr Friedman

    1. What feeds pituitary tumors? 2. Do you think Cell Therapy (the transplantation of human or animal cells to replace or repair damaged tissue and/or cells) should be or will be used for Cushings treatment? 3. Do you think alternative treatments like heavy doses of shark cartilage will get rid of a pituitary tumor?
