Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy for Patients with Cushing's

I find that the information on the Cushing's Research and Support Foundation's website regarding adrenalectomies still relevant, despite being written in the mid 2000s. Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is still the best route given low patient down time and limited complications and preferred surgical access.

Stomach acid--the why and the what

Stop The Thyroid Madness™ finally examines why those of us with Cushing's often replace iron and vitamin D, among other nutrients to malabsorption in the stomach.

After all of these years of fighting Cushing's, I still am learning the nuances of my treatment and care. 

This affects that and that affects this and so on and so forth. 

The more I click, the more I learn.

I hope you are enjoying my medical stream of consciousness. 

Character Above All: John F. Kennedy

This is a very interesting read.
JFK faced Addison's before synthetic cortisol replacement was widely available!

I can only strive to match the tenacity and philanthropy of JFK once I trade Cushing's for Addison's with the BLA surgery.
