Re: Pituitary Adenoma

I would encourage all of you to look into testing for Cushing's Syndrome especially if you:

1. Are rapidly gaining weight

2. Have large purple to pink stretch marks

3. Are fatigued

4. Have inapporpriate hair growth on your faces (if women)

5. Have what is called a "buffalo hump" this hump is actually an abnormal
accumulation of fat on the top of your back where your neck connects to
the rest of your body

6. Have high blood pressure

7. Have weight gain that seems to be centralized around your tummy
