What was your dog's stim test results? Once again, if your dog tests positive through the ACTH test, she likely does have Cushing's - esp if she has all the symptoms (hunger, hair loss, elevated liver enzymes, sometimes protein in urine, muscle loss, skin problems, thirst / urination).
You should think about switching to fish oil (from deep sea sources to avoid mercury). Cod liver oil has too much Omega 6 (your dog already gets that from his food), not enough Omega 3 and too much vitamin A and mercury.
Keep an eye on your dog's glucose level after sweet potato snacks because these will likely raise the glucose level.
