My daughter is 13 she has a buffalo hump, irregular periods, obesity, excessive sweating, excessive thirst, and a moon face. We had labs done blood work shows TSH 0.15 and FBS 104 (pre-diabetes). We are still awaiting results of the urine Cortisol test. Could this be Cushing's Disease? I've got a deep down gut feeling. Mother's intuition....We have a history of thyroid problems, Thyroid CA, Lupus, Diabetes, Heart Issues in the family.
