Obesity in America, and indeed in the world, is reaching epidemic
proportions. At this writing, more than 65 percent of
American adults and nearly one-quarter of our children are
overweight or obese. Data from the surgeon general’s office

deaths annually to the direct health effects of obesity (second
only to smoking)—and the numbers continue to climb.

Cushing's Syndrome is a disease caused by an excess of cortisol production or by excessive use of cortisol or other similar steroid (glucocorticoid) hormones. Cortisol is a normal hormone produced in the outer portion, or cortex, of the adrenal glands, located above each kidney. The normal function of cortisol is to help the body respond to stress and change. It mobilizes nutrients, modifies the body's response to inflammation, stimulates the liver to raise the blood sugar, and it helps control the amount of water in the body.
