Cushing’s syndrome can be difficult to live with, but your quality of life doesn’t have to decrease. There are healthcare providers trained to help you and there are treatments available. With proper procedures and medicine, Cushing’s syndrome can be cured.

You may find yourself dealing with some emotional and social issues as a result of Cushing’s syndrome. Some people may feel embarrassed by the balding, excessive hair and/or the weight gain in the face and back of the neck. “Moon face” and “buffalo hump” may make you hesitate to participate in social situations. With time, those symptoms can be cured. Cushing’s syndrome can also cause depression and other mental illnesses. If need be, consult a therapist for counseling and a psychiatrist for medication to help yourself deal with the emotional impact of Cushing’s syndrome.
