"Virtually all the symptoms and physical features of Cushing's can be associated with other diseases -- and diseases that are more common than Cushing's," William Ludlam, M.D., Ph.D., an endocrinologist at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, tells Ivanhoe.
Cushing is caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland that imbalances your hormones. Glands on the kidneys then release too much of the hormone cortisol. "So despite what you do, your metabolism has been hijacked by too much of a hormone that you actually need to live," Dr. Ludlam says.

"Virtually all the symptoms and physical features of Cushing's can be associated with other diseases -- and diseases that are more common than Cushing's," says Dr. William Ludlam, and endocrinologist at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon.
It's caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland that imbalances your hormones. Glands on the kidneys then release too much of the hormone cortisol.
"So despite what you do, your metabolism has been hijacked by too much of a hormone that you actually need to live," says Dr. Ludlam.
Surgery like this can remove the tumor -- with the greatest chance for a cure in the hands of an experienced neurosurgeon. Jaimie's first surgery didn't work, so last fall she had a second procedure. It worked. She's already lost 40 pounds.

"Most centers that deal with this would accept that the first line of treatment is pituitary surgery, brain surgery," Dr. William Ludlam, endocrinologist, said.

"It's still actually a difficult surgery, because these tumors are typically very liquidy, soft tumors and can ooze and go places," Dr. Ludlam said.
Augustine's surgery was a success, and she began to lose weight after doctors removed the tumor.

"There is a critical need for a medical treatment for people with Cushing's disease because currently available options, such as surgery or radiotherapy, are ultimately not effective for many of the patients who suffer from this debilitating disease," said William H. Ludlam, MD, PhD, Director, Seattle Pituitary Center at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute in Seattle, WA.  "The results of this study suggest that pasireotide may help patients achieve biochemical control of their Cushing's disease and its symptoms by directly targeting the pituitary tumor that triggers excess cortisol production."
