Well i am a 49 year old man.
Was diagnosed 4 years ago but when the Insurance company figured out how much all the testing and treatment was going to cost all of a sudden my doctor at the time said"don't worry all is fine it's not Cushing's after all" you have diabetis and very high blood pressure. So she treated me for that.
But my family doctor noticed me getting huge and some other signs and finally ordered more Cushings tests which like the first round came up postitive for Cushings. Then started the very slow process of trying to get information on the disease [he told me he knew nothing about it] and now after 4 years of having full blown Cushings i am finally starting to get help.
By the way i never had diabeties!So now i sit here reading every single thing i can about this horrible disease and hope that after all this time they can fix it.
I am so glad i came upon this site because i live in the mountains of New York state and there just isn't anyone up here that knows anything about this. And of course i am constantly fighting a very cost concerned insurance company.
I am married 26 years and have 3 beautiful kids and a fantastic wife.If you have any questions or any suggestions feel free to contact me.
