Cushing syndrome can affect anyone, but it is most frequently seen in adults between the ages of 20 to 50 years and is 3 times more common in women than men. It is estimated that there are two new cases per million people each year. Rarely, a person may have an inherited gene mutation , such as Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 or MEN-1, which increases the risk of developing tumors throughout the endocrine system, including pituitary and adrenal tumors. People who are obese and have type 2 diabetes along with poorly controlled blood glucose are at increased risk for Cushing syndrome.
I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism 20 years ago and have been on synthroid ever since. I now have Hashimoto Thyroidism. I have several allergies to medications, enviromental, and food sensitivities/allergies including but not limited to Bakers yeast, Coconut, whole milk, potato, sugar, brewers yeast, onion, rice, tomato, malt, green pepper, garlic and sulfites. I am finding it very difficult to find a diet of foods that I can eat that will help stabilize my disease. I feel best on a high protein low carb diet, however very boring and limited. Do you know how many foods have the above ingredients in them. Most. Entering menopause has only compounded the problem. Was manageable prior to menopause. Any suggestions on diet or how to handle hashimoto’s disease while going through menopause?
