Does anybody here have Cushing's or know of someone who does? If so, I'm wondering if after you had treatment for Cushing's, did it make a marked improvement in your blood sugar?

My blood sugar got high recently, as well as my blood pressure, and heart rate. Potassium levels plummeted, and are still low while on very high doses of potassium supplements. I have a lot of the other symptoms of Cushing's as well, but I won't list them all. I'm supposed to be going for an evaluation, not sure when. The neuroendcrinologist has a strange way of scheduling, so I have to wait for a call back. Hopefully I can find out soon.

I just wanted to hear some experiences since I have never met anyone that has it.

Thanks!

Cushing's causes an outpouring of cortisol, which causes insulin resistance. So yes, if you control cortisol, you will control IR and blood sugars.
