    Post Cushing's Disease/Addison's Syndrome

    In 1958 I was diagnosed with Cushing's Disease, a deterioration of the adrenal glands. One adrenal was removed then, and in 1962 the other was removed. Now I have Addison's Syndrome and have to take Hydrocortisone and Florinef for the rest of my life. At the time my Cushing's was diagnosed I was the first patient at the Mayo Clinic.

    Since I have had this for so many years, and have experienced numerous problems and remedies, I hope I will be able to help a few of you who are just entering this phase of your life.

    Actually there is no weight problem with this, only a round, full face due to the medication. That will remain forever. If you follow a normal healthy eating pattern and exercise you don't have to have a special diet. Over the years I have gained weight for other reasons and have managed to take it off one way or another.
