Cushing's Syndrome - Causes and Symptoms

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Cushing's Syndrome - Causes and Symptoms

Cushing’s syndrome occurs due to abnormally high levels of the hormone cortisol. This can happen for a variety of reasons. The most common cause is overuse of corticosteroid medications.

Causes:

Your adrenal glands produce cortisol. It helps with a number of your body’s functions, including:

  1. regulating blood pressure and the cardiovascular system

  2. reducing the immune system’s inflammatory response

  3. converting carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy

  4. balancing the effects of insulin

  5. responding to stress

Your body may produce high levels of cortisol for a variety of reasons, including:

  1. high stress levels, including stress related to an acute illness, surgery, injury, or pregnancy, especially in the final trimester

  2. athletic training

  3. malnutrition

  4. alcoholism

  5. depression, panic disorders, or high levels of emotional stress

The most common cause of Cushing’s syndrome is the use of corticosteroid medications, such as prednisone, in high doses for a long period. High doses of injectable steroids for treatment of back pain can also cause this syndrome.

Other causes include:

  1. a pituitary gland tumor in which the pituitary gland releases too much adrenocorticotropic hormone, which is also known as Cushing’s disease

  2. ectopic ACTH syndrome, which causes tumors that usually occur in the lung, pancreas, thyroid, or thymus gland

  3. an adrenal gland abnormality or tumor

Symptoms of Cushing’s Syndrome:

The most common symptoms of this condition are:

  • weight gain
  • obesity
  • fatty deposits, especially in the midsection, the face and between the shoulders and the upper back (causing a buffalo hump)
  • purple stretch marks on the breasts, arms, abdomen, and thighs
  • thinning skin that bruises easily
  • skin injuries that are slow to heal
  • acne
  • fatigue
  • muscle weakness
  • increased thirst
  • increased urination
  • bone loss
  • depression
  • an increased incidence of infections

Women may also notice extra facial and body hair, as well as absent or irregular menstruation.

Men may also have:

  • erectile dysfunction
  • a loss of sexual interest
  • decreased fertility

Children with this condition are generally obese and have a slower rate of growth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Sexual Communication - Why is it Important for Couples?

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DGO, MBBS, MCPS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Sexual Communication - Why is it Important for Couples?

Communication in any relationship is indispensable for creating a strong bond between a couple and a part of that communication is communicating about your desires and fantasies.

Sexual Communication is when you and your partner are able to express your needs and wants without the conversation being awkward, taking in account what the other feels. It is a fulfilling, satisfying, and a fun part of life. The physical aspect of love is an important part of a relationship and communicating with your partner about it only helps to make it better. Sexual communication will make it easier for you to take pleasure in sex with safety and have a satisfying sex life.

  1. Physical Communication: Communication is not linked with words only. Sometimes, a gentle hand placed on your shoulder or back, a simple glance at you or even a wink are enough to lure someone towards you. Healthy and amazing sexual activity is procured mainly through physical intimacy. Almost all the time, couples find out what the other is thinking even without asking them. ‘Actions speak louder than words’ is proven to be very true in this case. So, ensure that you understand physical cues of each other.

  2. Sexual Directions: Giving your partner verbal or physical direction is an integral part of achieving a satisfied sexual life. He or she needs to be informed of where to touch you and where not to in order to turn you on. If your spouse is clueless of what you might want or expect in bed, sexual gratification will not only become impossible but may turn disastrous. If there is verbal communication between you two such as, ‘kiss me’ or ‘touch me there’, the sexual experience will become ten times better. This happens only when there is love and proper sexual communication.

  3. Conversational Communication: Sexual urge is aroused only when there is vocal communication. All relationships require good oral communication. Communication related to sex must be done tactfully without making it awkward or uncomfortable. It will help solve many issues in your sexual and love life. You must focus on what your partner might prefer doing more or may work around issues which cause strife and eventually resolve them.

  4. Intimacy: Emotional as well as sexual intimacy requires honest communication. Some display their inner inhibitions while others are reserved in matters of expression on sexual life. Each couple is accustomed to different and unique styles of communication with their partners. It is important to be able to comfortably and smoothly express yourself and get instant feedback from your spouse in order to be most compatible with each other. If you wish to discuss about any specific sexual problem, you can consult a sexologist and ask a free question.

If you already got your periods then you do not need to take the pill again for the second act. Ipill is a hormonal pill which work only temporarily, so it can cause only temporary problems in your body like irregular menses for the current cycle. There is no effect on the future. If you have regular intercourse then it is better you start oc pills like novelon or femilon.

Premature ejaculation can also be defined as an ejaculation that occurs before the man wishes it to occur or when ejection occurs too quickly to sexually satisfy his partner. Premature ejection is often due to physical changes occurring in the body due to aging. Men over age 30 may begin to have problems even though their sex lives were fine when they were younger. The problem is often an inadequate blood supply in the penis. When the arteries in the penis become partially clogged with fat and cholesterol, maintaining an erection becomes more difficult. When this occurs, your brain tells your body that you'd better ejaculate before you lose your erection, and a pattern for premature ejection is developed. So, how to deal with this situation. We should live a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain good arterial health. Your potency will be prolonged if you eat a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, exercise regularly, don't smoke or drink and keep your stress managed.


    Homeopathy has an effective and promising treatment for premature ejaculation or early ejaculation problem. It is because homeopathy treats the cause of any health problems rather than the symptoms. 

  •     Homeopathic treatment increases the emission and ejaculation time of semen during a sexual act.
  •     It also helps to cure the erectile problem associated with premature ejaculation.
  •     It also cures the physical and mental exhaustion associated with pe due to over mentally stressed condition
  •     Homeopathic treatment cures the anxiety condition and guilty feeling symptoms associated with pe
  •     Homeopathic treatment cures the night emission too occurs in young mass.
  •     Homeopathic treatment also cures the prostatic discharge during urine and stool
  •     Homeopathic treatment also helps for oligospermia, azoospermia condition
  •     Homeopathic treatment is the most safest and permanent approach to treatment in premature ejaculation problem

Helo lybrate-user I suggest please repeat your urine pregnancy test. If it still comes negative then take gynoset. Once you start your menses the bloating feeling will go away since you are now married for 2 years you should consult a gynaecologist for infertility. U can get back to me after your menses so that I can guide you further regards Dr. mukul.

Things You should Know About PCOS

Things you should know about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). I am Dr. Jyotsna gupta (Gynecologist/Obstetrician). What is Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)? Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a health problem that can affect a woman's menstrual cycle - Ability to have children. Appearance Hormones Blood vessels Heart With PCOS/PCOD, women typically have high levels of'androgens, these are sometimes called male hormones, though females also make them. Many a times,small cysts (fluid-filled sacs) are formed in the ovaries. What causes PCOS? The cause of PCOS is unknown. But most experts think that several factors, including genetics, can play a role. Women with pcos are more likely to have a mother or sister with pcos. A main underlying problem with pcos is a hormonal imbalance. In women with pcos, the ovaries make more androgens than normal. Androgens are male hormones that females also make. High levels of these hormones affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation.High androgen levels can lead to Acne, excessive hair growth, weight gain problems with ovulation. How many women have pcos? Between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 women having childbearing age has pcos. It can occur in girls as young as 11 years old. What are the symptoms of pcod or pcos? The symptoms of pcos can vary from woman to woman. Some of the polycystic ovary syndrome symptoms include: infrequent, absent or irregular menstrual periods. Infertility (not able to get pregnant) because of not ovulating. In fact, pcos is the most common cause of female infertility. Increased hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, back, thumbs, or toes, male-pattern baldness or thinning hair. Cysts on the ovaries, acne, oily skin or dandruff, weight gain or obesity, usually with extra weight around the waist. Skin tags excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area, pelvic pain, anxiety or depression Patches of skin on the neck, arms, breasts, or thighs that are thick and dark brown or black Sleep apnea when breathing stops for short period of time while asleep. How do I know if I have pcos? There is no single test to diagnose pcos. Your doctor will take the following steps to find out if you have pcos or if something else is causing you symptoms. Medical history - your doctor will ask about your menstrual periods, weight changes, and other symptoms. Physical exam - your doctor will measure your blood pressure, body mass index (bmi), and waist size. He or she also will check the areas of increased hair growth. You should try to allow the natural hair to grow for a few days before the visit. Pelvic exam - your doctor might want to check to see if your ovaries are enlarged or swollen by the increased number of small cysts. Blood tests - your doctor may check the androgen hormone and glucose (sugar) levels in your blood. Ultrasound (sonogram) - your doctor may perform a test that uses sound waves to take pictures of the pelvic area. It might be used to examine your ovaries for cysts and check the endometrium (lining of the womb). This lining may become thicker if your periods are not regular. How is pcos treated? Because there is no cure for pcos, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatment goals are based on your symptoms, whether or not you want to become pregnant, and lowering your chances of getting heart disease and diabetes. Many women will need a combination of treatments to meet these goals. Some treatments for pcos include: lifestyle modification. Many women with pcos are overweight or obese, which can cause health problems. You can help manage your pcos by eating healthy and exercising to keep your weight at a healthy level. Healthy eating tips include: limiting processed foods and foods with added sugars, adding more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet. This helps to lower blood glucose (sugar) levels, improve the body's use of insulin, and normalize hormone levels in your body. Even a 10 percent loss in body weight can restore a normal period and make your cycle more regular. Birth control pills. For women who don't want to get pregnant, birth control pills can control menstrual cycles .Reduce male hormone levels Help to clear acne. Fertility medications - Lack of ovulation is usually the reason for fertility problems in women with pcos. Several medications that stimulate ovulation can help women with pcos become pregnant. Even so, other reasons for infertility in both the woman and man should be ruled out before fertility medications are used. Another option is in vitro fertilization (ivf). Ivf offers the best chance of becoming pregnant in any given cycle. It also gives doctors better control over the chance of multiple births. But, ivf is very costly. Surgery - ovarian drilling is a surgery that may increase the chance of ovulation. It is sometimes used when a woman does not respond to fertility medicines. This surgery can lower male hormone levels and help with ovulation. But, these effects may only last a few months. Medicines for increased hair growth or extra male hormones. Medicines called anti-androgens may reduce hair growth and clear acne. Anti-androgens are often combined with birth control pills. These medications should not be taken if you are trying to become pregnant. Before taking any medicines tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Do not breastfeed while taking this medicine. Other options include: cream to reduce facial hair Laser, hair removal or electrolysis to remove hair. Hormonal treatment to keep new hair from growing. Does pcos change at menopause? Yes and no. Pcos affects many systems in the body. So, many symptoms may persist even though ovarian function and hormone levels change as a woman is close to menopause. For instance, excessive hair growth continues, and male-pattern baldness or thinning hair gets worse after menopause. Also, the risks of complications (health problems) from pcos, such as heart attack, stroke, and diabetes, increase as a woman gets older. Polycystic ovary syndrome and pregnancy - how does pcos affect a woman while in pregnancy? Women with pcos appear to have higher rates of miscarriage premature delivery. Pregnancy - induces high blood pressure. Does pcos put women at risk for other health problems? Women with pcos have greater chances of developing several serious health conditions. Recent studies found that women with pcos can have diabetes or pre-diabetes at early age. Women with pcos are at greater risk of having high blood pressure. Women with pcos can develop sleep apnea. This is when breathing stops for short period of time during sleep. Women with pcos may also develop anxiety and depression. It is important to talk to your doctor about treatment for these mental health conditions. Irregular menstrual periods and the lack of ovulation cause women to produce the hormone estrogen, but not the hormone progesterone. Progesterone causes the endometrium (lining of the womb) to shed each month as a menstrual period. Without progesterone, the endometrium becomes thick, which can cause heavy or irregular bleeding. Over time, this can lead to endometrial hyperplasia, when the lining grows too much. If you have pcos, get your symptoms under control at an earlier age to help reduce your chances of having complications like diabetes and heart disease. Talk to your doctor about treating all your symptoms, rather than focusing on just one aspect of your pcos, such as problems getting pregnant. Also, talk to your doctor about getting tested for diabetes regularly. Other steps you can take to lower your chances of health problems include eating right, exercising, not smoking. How can I cope with the emotional effects of pcos? Having pcos can be difficult. You may feel embarrassed by your appearance, worried about being able to get pregnant, depressed. Managing pcos (diet and exercise) - following lifestyle and diet modifications can help manage pcos symptoms to an extent. Frequently have small meals (5-6 times a day) without fail, drink a lot of water (8-10 glasses). Try to consume 2-3 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Stick to a high fibre diet (wholegrains/fruits/vegetables). Give preference to home cooked meals, add brightly colored and white vegetables to your diet. They have high anti-oxidants food to avoid - Fried/packaged/processed foods. Foods with high glycemic exercises, suggested work out at least 5 times every week for at least 30 minutes Running, swimming, yoga strengthening exercises . Even if you don't lose weight, exercise in pcos helps to improve things like- insulin sensitivity, frequency of ovulation, cholesterol, body composition. Getting treatment for pcos can help with these concerns and help boost your self-esteem. It is advised that you should consult gynecologist who can help you based on your symptoms and requirements to manage pcod/pcos.

Consult your gyaneacologist. Without checking both of you nobody say what is actual problem. When you're trying to conceive, remember simple" do's" for how to get pregnant: do have sex regularly. Do have sex once a day near the time of ovulation. Do make healthy lifestyle choices. Do consider preconception planning. Do take your vitamins.

Actually anal sex is an unnatural way of activity and it can hurt your wife and will create problems when she defecates and can also cause piles or fissures and so avoid the type of sexual activity.

Eneuron tablet contains minerals and vitamins, if you are really anaemic, you need iron supplements rather than multivitamins. Get your Hemoglobin, Vit B12 and Vit D3 levels checked and then you may start treatment accordingly.

As a couple if you need continued contraception for one year, you should consult a gynaecologist. A most effective and safe contraceptive method can be advised only after a detailed history of the partners. As regards the present situation, delayed periods can be a sign of pregnancy. Do a urine pregnancy test at home. If positive consult a gynecologist without delay.
