    I was tested for Cushing's two years ago. My endocrinologist really thought I had it but I did not.
    It is usually caused by a benign tumore on pituitary gland or the adrenal glands. It can also be induced
    by taking steroids. If it is from steroid usage, stopping the drugs helps. Otherwise, I believe they remove
    the tumor. There is an excelling website devoted
    to cushing's. Try a web search on Cushing's Support.
    You should find it.

    Good luck,
