I buried myself today. Only half a person left. I should be...
Are diet and exercise not helping you lose weight? Is it obesity or Cushing’s disease?
Cushing’s disease is due to a pituitary tumor producing elevated levels of ACTH which causes the adrenal gland to produce too much cortisol.
Cushing’s syndrome is due to ACTH from tumors not in the pituitary gland.
Are you tired of doctors who won’t listen to you, or believe you; doctors who won’t offer you advice on how to cope with Cushing’s Disease?
You don’t have to watch your life slip away. It is difficult to read about people suffering on the Facebook pages, without offering help based on my own experience.
With a Cushing’s recurrence, I can golf, kayak, and climb hills. I have reclaimed my life through diet, body chemistry, and positive thinking.
Learn how to reclaim your life. Be pro-active.
Please join me in this experiment. Let’s teach doctors the importance of listening to their patients. Make your voice count.
This is not about dieting and eating less. It is about my body’s intolerance to starchy foods. I have a better quality of life while living with Cushing’s by lowering the consumption of starchy foods. I am conducting my own experiment with foods and asking my fellow Cushies to join me in this study to see if they get the same life-changing results as me. I am not a doctor, nurse nor nutritionist. I don’t know if this diet will have any adverse effects on my health. I can only go by the way I feel, and I feel better on it. Remember, I’m not a doctor so check with your doctor before going on it. This information is not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. However, I can show you the changes that I have experienced. I don’t know if this will work for you, but you will never know unless you try it. I have been on this diet for over 4 years. This is an experiment that has worked for me. This is not a cure. The only cure is an operation. After you have been diagnosed with Cushing’s this diet might help you while you are waiting for your operation date. We each must take charge of our lives to make them better. This diet has made my life better. What is it worth to have a better quality of life?
Look at the activities below that I can do. Flip the pictures to discover the steps to reclaiming your life.
I am able to lose weight. My legs don’t feel like they will collapse with each step. I have more strength and energy, am losing less hair and the brain fog disappears. There is hope for us. BELIEVE.
