I would be remiss if I didn't use today's Challenge post to remind readers that there is a wonderful opportunity to ask Dr. Theodore Friedman questions about thyroid or other issues. Dr. Friedman (or Dr. F, as he is called on the boards) has been a help to so many Cushies. He specializes in cyclical Cushing's and seems to be able to diagnose what other, lesser, doctors cannot.
According to his website, goodhormonehealth.com:
So many of us believe that fatigue, weight gain, loss of libido and other problems are just symptoms we must learn to live with. What if these symptoms are not the result of stress, diet, or aging, but are actually caused by a hormonal disorder? Symptoms of hormone deficiency or excess may be subtle and difficult to diagnose. Many hormonal problems are misdiagnosed as depression, especially in women.
You know your own body better than anyone else, and you know when something is wrong. Dr. Friedman is a compassionate, caring physician who will listen carefully to your concerns and work with you to establish a treatment plan. As an experienced, board-certified endocrinologist and researcher, he has the capabilities to diagnose and treat even the most difficult hormonal problems.
Dr. Friedman has found that some of his patients suffer from undiagnosed pituitary or adrenal problems. These include many people suffering from Cushing's disease, which can present a baffling array of symptoms and is frequently misdiagnosed. Other patients may have pituitary or adrenal insufficiency, which has numerous symptoms and is equally hard to diagnose. Dr. Friedman is a world expert in these difficult-to-diagnose diseases and he welcomes inquiries from patients and their physicians.
Dr. Friedman is not a stranger to Cushings Help.
