Kingston, NY - Adrenal Fatigue doctor assistance needed

by Mary
(Kingston, NY)

I am looking for a Adrenal specialist. I have been to multiple doctors and have ruled out most issues but this one. After having 3 kids I was diagnosed with PCOS, insulin resistance, now border line diabetes. I am not overweight but slowly gaining and completely exhausted. I did do a salvia test with one doc. and my cortisol levels came back low. I was then told by my PC that these tests are not that accurate. I am always exhausted, cold, and having a hard time functioning. If anyone has a suggestion of a Dr. in Kingston, NY or surrounding areas please let me know.

Cushing's Syndrome
by: Marlene

Hello Mary,
I'm not a doctor, but I've gone through 3 years, with the exact same symptoms, until I was forced to quit working. None of many doctors could not figure it out. All of a sudden, I became a diabetic, my blood pressure was sky high, I had a very bad case of hirsutism (dark hair growing on the sides and chin area of my face, and breasts and abdomen. I was starting to gain weight,40lbs, all in my belly area. I actually looked like I was pregnant. And the fatigue became paralyzing, which is why I had to quit my job. It is an endocrine illness.
The ONLY test that can prove it is a "24 hr. urine collection!" My cortisol no.'s were sky high, therefore causing my testosterone no.s to be insanely high (reason for my hirsutism). There are 2 conditions: 1.Cushing's "Syndrome," (tumors in the "adrenal glands"). or 2.Cushing's "Disease," (tumor in the pituitary gland (in your brain area). I ended up having the "Syndrome." So they ordered a CT of my abdomen, which ended up showing 3 large tumors all stuck together. So I ended up having an adrenalectomy, my left adrenal gland was removed. Now, I have to be on steroids for a year, to "wake up" my right adrenal gland to begin producing the cortisol in my body. It became dormant cuz the right side was creating so much. There is also a test for your pituitary gland. Don't freak out, bec. 99% of these tumors are considered "active," but NOT cancerous! Cushing's is crazy rare, 5 cases per 1 million people in a year.99% of Endocrinologists do not see even one Cushing's patient in their entire career! So they are clueless as to diagnosing it. Your cortisol level changes many times during a day. That is why the only test that can prove it for certain, is the 24 hr urine test. All my other tests showed a "normal" cortisol level. Mary, you have to let me know if this is what you have. It ruined 3 years of my life. Recovering from it, is another issue. Good luck, & I hope with all my heart that this information helps you.

Any luck?
by: Anonymous

I'm not very far south of you. I'm wondering if you ever found anyone? To address the other suggestion....Steven Bock focuses primarily on Lyme (he got me up off the couch I'd spent a year on), his brother Ken Bock does address adrenals. He is located in Red Hook. $$$$$ though!

Kingston Doc?
by: GC

Hello,
I am closer to Oneonta, and am having similar issues. I heard of a doc in Rhinebeck named Steven Bock, and I wonder if he addresses adrenal fatigue, or if you have any experience with him, since you live down that way.
Good luck with your search!
