(The Best Years in Life) Cushing's Disease is a common condition in older dogs. Too often, the symptoms are attributed to the normal aging process. Left untreated, canine Cushing's can lead to serious conditions such as diabetes, pancreatitis, heart disease, seizures, kidney failure, and nervous disorders. However, with the proper natural treatment, pets with Cushing's can go on to live a longer and more comfortable life.
The most common cause of Cushing's is a benign tumor in the pituitary gland. The tumor causes the pituitary gland to over secrete ACTH, (adrenocorticotrophic hormone) which, in turn, causes the adrenals to release excessive cortisol. Because of this faulty mechanism, the pituitary gland does not respond in stopping the release of ACTH.
In a smaller percentage of Cushing's cases, an adrenal tumor is
responsible for the secretion of too much cortisol. 50% of these tumors are
benign and 50% are malignant with the probability of metastasizing to the lungs
Cushing's disease is usually difficult to diagnose. No single test will point to
a specific diagnosis. Three specific tests are given for a proper diagnosis: a
urine cortisol/creatinine ratio test, an ACTH stimulation test, and low and high
dose dexamethasone suppression tests.
Here are some of the other best ones:
* Dandelion - Helps normalize adrenal function. It is also an excellent tonic
for the liver and kidneys. Dandelion reduces inflammation in the body and also
contains vitamins and minerals necessary for hair growth.
