CUSHING'S DISEASE

 

Cushing’s disease, more accurately known as Hyperadrenocorticism (or HAC), occurs as a result of an increase in the level of cortisol (produced by the adrenal glands) circulating in the blood, coupled with a failure of the mechanism that normally controls the level within the limits determined by physiological needs.

 

 

It is a complex disease that is not easy to diagnose and that can readily be confused with other conditions presenting similar symptoms.
