A decline in serum glucose level would be expected to a patient who is successfully treated for Cushing’s syndrome. People who are suffering from this syndrome usually have high levels of cortisol. Cortisol helps regulate the blood sugar level and when the levels of cortisol are high, the levels of blood sugar also heightens. When a person who was suffering Cushing’s syndrome gets a treatment and is a success, the levels of cortisol will dramatically decrease.

Symptoms of this syndrome are weight gain with purple or pink stretch marks, and wounds that heal slowly. It is better to treat this syndrome when early symptoms appear so it will not lead to type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and osteoporosis.

Serum glucose level.-hyperglycemia, which develops from glucocorticoid excess, is a manifestation of cushings syndrome. with successful treatment of the disorder, serum glucose levels decline. hirsutism is common in cushings syndrome; therefore, with successful treatment, abnormal hair growth also declines. osteoporosis occurs in cushings syndrome; therefore, with successful treatment, bone mineralization increases. amenorrhea develops in cushings syndrome. with successful treatment, the client experiences a return of menstrual flow, not a decline in it.
