Thanks - I thought that was interesting too.  I saw it on TV last night.  I wonder if us Cushies get bone problems because of the depression we get from the disease.

Cortisol is often mildly raised in depressed patients. Clinical depression is a form of pseudo-cushings. The cortisol is what weakens the bones :con:


Try to remember that when folks mention stress... the stress hormone is cortisol.


Cushings is stress in overdrive.
