Kushing's Disease

Were you looking for information about Cushing's Disease? Kushing's disease is a common misspelling of Cushing's disease.
 
People who have Cushing's disease have a hormonal disorder that is typically caused by a noncancerous pituitary tumor. As a result, the body produces too much cortisol. After a long period of time, this excess cortisol is responsible for the classic symptoms of Cushing's disease, such as excessive weight gain, fatigue, and purplish stretch marks on the abdomen, thighs, and breasts. Possible treatment options may include surgery, medications, and radiation therapy.
