Cushings from steroids

People who take prescription medications similar to cortisol in high doses for a long period of time for inflammatory diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and inflammatory bowel disease) may develop Cushing's syndrome. In fact, this is the most common cause of Cushing's syndrome and is termed "iatrogenic", . caused by the doctor. Medications that are similar to cortisol are called glucocorticoids, corticosteroids, or sometimes just "steroids" for short. They are not the same as the performance-enhancing steroids taken by some athletes. The most commonly prescribed glucocorticoid medication is called prednisone. Because glucocorticoids suppress the immune system, they reduce inflammation and are also frequently given to people who have had organ transplants to prevent the immune cells from attacking the transplant.

Testing this axis is not as easy as it sounds. The mammalian body is a dynamic system with thousands of chemical reactions and interactions occurring simultaneously. Also, levels of cortisol are in a continual state of flux, depending on the time of day, the season, medications, diet, and stress levels. Underlying diseases like Urinary Tract Infections can affect these screening tests, and need to be controlled first. Because of all this variability, interpreting these tests can be problematic, and it is not uncommon to repeat them in the future to look for consistent findings and monitor trends.

A few natural products vie for the Canine Cushing’s market. You mentioned Supraglan and Cushex, neither of which am I qualified to talk about although I’m sure they are fine products. My recommendation is one of our Primalix naturopathic-veterinary Herbal Extract “Functional Food Drops” formulated specifically to ameliorate and eliminate symptoms of Cushing’s in all dog breeds. It’s called Primalix CortiQuel and everything I have to say about this safe and effective herbal remedy can be found at Cushing’s in Dogs.

Adrenal Harmony Gold was developed by our holistic veterinarians to support your dog with Cushing's. The therapeutic actions of the ingredients are:  adaptogenic, antioxidant and will support the nervous system. These herbs are particularly suited to targeting the adrenal glands and its functions, but also exert an effect on the pituitary and hypothalamus glands. "Adaptogens" are a classification of herbs considered to support the adrenals, helping the body adapt naturally to stressors and produce normal, healthy levels of cortisol. Unlike drugs, adaptogens will not stimulate or depress adrenal function but, rather, help the adrenals normalize their hormone production. Antioxidants counter oxidative (free radical) damage that can lead to degeneration.
