Reviews - What do customers think about My Battle with Cushing's Disease?

Nothing very useful to anyone else  Sep 16, 2006
I read this book hoping for some useful information but all she did was ramble on about what she went through. It would have been better if she had given some useful information for others that may be trying to find some answers to their own health issues. I'm glad I didn't buy this as it wouldn't have been worth the money. If you can find it at your library (which is difficult) it might give you an interesting few hours reading.
Very small book  Jun 26, 2005
While I did enjoy reading this book, I realized that I didn't learn anything new that I didn't find out on my own, doing internet searches about Cushing's.

Also, the book was so small (only 67 pages). I was shocked that I had to pay nearly $10.00 for it. Not worth the money.
Valuable first-hand story about Cushing's Disease  May 13, 2004
Linda Garnier went through a traumatic experience to get a correct diagnosis. Diabetes, unexplained weight gain of over one hundred pounds--it all was attributed to being "in her head" despite the fact she was eating right and exercising a great deal. Well, the disease WAS in her head--she had a benign pituitary tumor that was causing the dangerous hormonal imbalance of the adrenals. This imbalance is known as Cushing's Disease and can eithe be rooted in the adrenal glands themselves (small glands over the kidneys) or in the brain, in the master gland itself. Tumors of the pituitary can be quite dangerous, causing wild fluctuations of various hormones and also deep depressions. They are a serious matter, though treatable.

After her diagnosis, Ms. Garnier then had difficulties getting proper treatment in a timely matter. Ultimately, she had an operation and is now in good health again, but her struggle with the medical profession is enlightening.

If you have an illness, even if it isn't Cushing's Disease, this book is helpful as a very poignant story about how assertive one has to be with one's own doctors. If you do have Cushing's Disease, this is a helpful story to provide hope, information and also coaching for your own treatment.
