Kuching Disease

Were you looking for information about Cushing's Disease? Kuching disease is a common misspelling of Cushing's disease.
Cushing's disease is a type of hormonal disorder that is caused when a tumor on the pituitary gland produces an excess of certain hormones. Over time, this increase in hormones can cause problems such as excessive weight gain, growth retardation, and decreased fertility in men. Possible treatment options may include medications, surgery, and radiation therapy. Cushing's disease affects women five times more frequently than men.
