Cushing’s disease, also called Cushing’s syndrome, is a rare disorder of the endocrine system. If untreated, it can lead to high blood pressure, bone loss and diabetes. Many international hospitals have endocrinology centers where doctors provide treatment for Cushing’s disease. Medical tourists can receive treatments in private or university hospitals in Germany, Spain, Turkey, India, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Israel, Mexico and Panama.
Cushing’s disease usually results from the use of too much corticosteroid medication. Sometimes, the body produces too much cortisol and this can cause disease symptoms. People who have Cushing’s syndrome experience progressive changes in their weight and skin condition. The disease may also affect libido and reproductive functioning. Medical tourists usually seek surgery, radiation therapy or medications to treat or control Cushing's disease.
