Addison's Disease Board Index

Alas, another echos what I said before - that amount of steroids was borderline criminal if only they could prosecute for it.

Normally for Cushing's they would test by doing a lot of 24 hour urinary free cortisol tests, 8am cortisols, 11pm saliva tests. Other tests that support the diagnosis are DHEA sulfate, renin, aldosterone, vitamin D (usually low).

There are dex suppression tests but they are not good for exclusion in my opinion as well, cripes, I know so many who failed yet still had the disease.

My thyroid used to jump up and down like crazy when my pituitary was unstable. Your daughter has not had enough tests to tell.
