  1. Qosmio, thanks for catching that! I'm not even diagnosed yet and was quaking in my boots! That makes me feel way better. I was also quite confused as to why they would claim it to be relatively safe. I just thought "well, I guess it's because slightly more patients lived than died." Lol! Whew.
  2. One thing that might help you with the infections/slow healing is zinc and vitamin c. I know that ever since all of this stuff started with me my zinc is chronically low. I have to take zinc because if I don't my level drops. I've gotten to where I can tell by just symptoms now. But I used to heal extremely slow. I had a mild toe infection for over a year if that tells you anything, and it wasn't until I started zinc that it cleared up. What antibiotics couldn't cure zinc did. I usually have colds for about a month if I don't take my zinc. I read a study on the intrawebz that said cushing's patients should take zinc. This bastard affects more than just vitamin d apparently! I also have to take magnesium. Dr. F. Even suggests magnesium. If i don't take it my fatigue and weakness is almost unbearable. Just some tips to help you in the future. I completely understand your position. I myself am terrified of the possibility that I may need a bla in the future but if it came down to it I know I'd go through with it for the same reasons you will.
  3. I'm such a worrier by nature that if I ever had to have a BLA I'd worry myself to death (literally) over the fear of dying from the BLA. Either that or I'd have medically induced cushing's from all of the steroids I'd be pumping myself full of in fear of dying! lol. I know. I'm crazy. I'm curious as to how you feel about this outcome.
  4. Am I the only one completely freaked out by the fact that 46% of the participants DIED within the first year??? Did I read it wrong or something?
  5. Very interesting indeed. I think, as hard as this will be for me, I'm going to stop the curry powder until I finish testing. Just to be on the safe side...
  6. Curcumin acts as anti-tumorigenic and hormone-suppressive agent in murine and human pituitary tumour cells in vitro and in vivo http://erc.endocrinology-journals.org/content/16/4/1339.full Also Growth suppression of mouse pituitary corticotroph tumor AtT20 cells by curcumin: a model for treating Cushing's disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20405005 And Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) inhibits cell proliferation, induces apoptosis, and decreases hormone levels and secretion in pituitary tumor cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18450960 After eating curry in my eggs and tuna every chance I get I've noticed a difference in certain things. I know that there is evidence to suggest curcumin is anti carcinogenic and anti inflammatory and I attribute the changes to the anti inflammatory effect. But I still got curious....so I decided to look up turmeric/curcumin and pituitary tumors and this is what I found. Just thought it was interesting.
  7. Well, no call back from the doctor's office. Everything turned out normal.

  8. Dropped off my 24hr UFC yesterday and had some labs drawn. Now to await my NORMAL results...Sigh...
