    Help with diagnosis?

    Age: 50
    Sex: Male

    Medical history:
    decreased libido
    chronic fatigue
    muscle weakness
    heat intolerance
    decreased beard growth
    enlargement of nose, lips, tounge
    pot belly, round face
    *recently, the patient fell from a roof. Polyuria and polydipsea developed after the fall*

    Physical exam:
    high BP, pulse
    small testicles
    dilated pupils
    *Patient is on high doses of prednisone for ITP*

    No sugar in urine
    high urine output
    dilute urine

    high glucose
    high calcium
    high T3 T4
    high tbg
    low tsh
    low testosterone
    low lh
    normal prl
    high growth hormone
    low acth
    low cortisol
    normal pth

    I'm totally confused. I was thinking it might be Cushing's syndrome, but that wouldn't explain the high thyroid levels or high calcium levels. Any thoughts?
