Default Re: Harley's visit to the Univ. of Penn.

Lori, Dr. O isn't saying that Harley has Pit Cushing's, too. What he is saying is that the source of the Atypical is coming from a lesion in the Pit gland which is causing the adrenals to pump out the excess intermediate hormones. To have Pit Cushing's, the cortisol must elevated. Harley's cortisol is basically normal. (You always look at the post value which is the most important). Atypical can be either adrenal or pit-based, just like regular Cushing's.

What do the vets say about monitoring the nodule on the adrenal gland? Have they said to do a US after a certain period of time to see if there are any changes in that nodule? If they haven't said anything, I would ask.

Thanks for your post.
