My 11 y/o daughter has had significant weight gain over the past three years. She has the moon face & large abdomen along with other signs and symptoms. Her cardiologist recently referred her to an endocrinologist who ordered a series of test to check her for Cushing's. We did 24 hr urine test at home that showed high level of Cortisol. We were hospitalized for two days last week for more lab work , another 24 hour urine, dexamethasone suppression test and MRI. Her MRI was abnormal. She has a microadenoma on her pituitary about 4mm. We have a f/u appointment with endocrinologist next week to discuss her tx plan as the team are waiting for all lab results. I was wondering is anyone else in group the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with Cushing's?
