Does anyone have a B with Cushings? I am interested in the testing and diagnosing of Cushings.
Two of my Bs have had inconclusive results for it. My girl is 12 1/2 and also has Fanconi and a gallbladder problem. She is having an adrenal test done next week which is being sent to the Univ. of TN and it is expensive-almost $500. She has had all the other tests done for Cushings previously. When she was examined last week by the specialist she had a potbelly and had gained weight. She had a recheck ultrasound done for her gallbladder and her stomach was distended with fluid and ingesta and wasn't moving well. She is now taking Reglan. I fed her only 1/4 cup of food in the morning along with her pills and supplements. My boy is 10 1/2 and had a high urine cortisol/creatinine ratio test but the low dose dexamethasone suppression test was negative. The high urine test can be caused by other problems. He looks like he could have Cushings and he had been on steroids for an autoimmume problem over a year ago. He has had some kind of lung/breathing problem and has had different tests done for it.
