You always need cortisol in your body. You need it to function. It manages your respiration, turns your food into energy, regulates your blood sugar, helps you cope with stress and more. Cortisol is not your body’s enemy, but too much of it can be. Have your healthcare provider monitor your cortisol levels closely if you’re on glucocorticoids or steroids. Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent a tumor that causes Cushing’s syndrome.
