Default Re: Jesse just diagnosed with Cushings

Hi Patti,

Welcome and I am glad you found us. If your Mark Peterson is the same one I am familiar with then I think you will be in very good hands.

I just wanted to point out that the results of your low dose dex. test indicate the possibility that Jesse could have an adrenal tumor. There was no suppression after the injection of dexamesthasone, the second and third numbers are higher than the first. This test cannot diagnose an adrenal tumor but it can indicate the definitel possibility. By far, the best way to determine if Jesse has an adrenal tumor is a high quality ultrasound. I think this is something you should address with your professionals.

All the best to you and Jesse.
