Hello,

I have several cushings symptoms, buffalo hump extreme weight gain in stomach, tiredness...anyway my Doctor only tested my random cortisol which was normal. Can you have a normal random cortisol and still have cushings?

Laura, Shaw is absolutely correct.  Usually, to diagnose Cushing's, you need many tests, some at specific times of the day and some ALL day.

If you can, get to an endocrinologist who is very familiar with Cushing's and Cushing's testing.

Best of luck to you and please keep us posted.

This is so true, unfortunately, Hialeah.  In "my day", they didn't have saliva testing so it was several weeks of daily UFCs.

Welcome you to the boards.
