Lab work

Question

Guest Kenz

I got my lab work done.

I have all the symptoms of cushing’s Disease, from the buffalo hump and obesity to the easy bruising and the muscle weakness. 

My cortisol levels came back normal, and I haven’t gotten the results of my ACTH yet. 

Has anyone had normal cortisol levels come back and still had cushing’s Disease?

Absolutely!  I had to do weeks and weeks of UFCs before I was finally diagnosed.

Best of luck to you, Kenz.  I hope you join the boards so you can get access to all the info and here.

I asked some of the other Cushies I know.

One said:  "I was dx with dex suppression test. Normal levels in AM, normal 24 hr urine."

Unfortunately, this is one of the reasons it's so hard to diagnose Cushing's - far too many normal results and endos stop testing. :(
