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. In this informative webinar, Dr. Friedman will discuss
The use of imaging for the diagnosis of Cushing’s Disease
The need for multiple testing to diagnose episodic Cushing’s Disease
The importance of UFC and salivary cortisol testing
The use of medication trial prior to surgery
The use of ketoconazole for the medication trial and longer-term treatment
Dr. Friedman will also discuss new Cushing’s medications.
