  1. Donkey, I am so sorry to read all that you've been through. Getting a Cushing's diagnosis is the worst, especially when doctors don't believe us. You didn't know what kind of doctor you have that doubts you have Cushing's but it sounds like you need another. Your best choice would be an endocrinologist who has had other Cushing's patients. Even though you aren't obese with striae...not every person has every symptom. The only way to diagnose Cushing's is with testing, not by a list of symptoms. Best of luck to you. I hope you keep us posted on your progress!

  2. Excess mortality among people with endogenous Cushing syndrome (CS) has declined in the past 20 years yet remains three times higher than in the general population, new research finds. Among more than 90,000 individuals with endogenous CS, the overall proportion of mortality ― defined as the ratio of the number of deaths from CS divided by the total number of CS patients ― was 0.05, and the standardized mortality rate was an "unacceptable" three times that of the general population, Padiporn Limumpornpetch, MD, reported on March 20 at ENDO 2021: The Endocrine Society Annual Meeting.
