Found Out The Cause Of My Severe Cystic Acne

19 April 2013 - 05:02 PM

Well after months of getting off BP and breaking out in severe cystic acne, I went to see an endocrinologist in January to figure out the problem. After months of tests, labs, bloodwork. A cat scan showed I have a tumor on my adrenal gland causing my body to produce too much cortisol which causes cushing's syndrome. condition is very rare it only affects 2 in a million people. And because of excess cortisol it is causing the acne since tests shows I have normal estrogen/ testosterone/ androgen levels. I have to get surgery to remove the tumor and hopefully all the other terrible symptoms will resolve. I urge those of you guys who have severe acne to see if you have a hormonal problem and see endocrinologist before you go to dermatologist or take accutane or whatever because severe acne is most def a hormonal problem. Please check out my blog and show some support thanks guys.
