Has anyone read an article on the relationship ( if any) between sjogrens causing Cushing Disease??

My weight gain is awful. I see a fat pad between my shoulders. I have fat globs under my armpits,
On my torso is holding this increase weight.

I am treated for my hypothyroid....levels are good.

No acne, no hairy face, no purple strain.

Have you seen an endocrinologist? The autoimmune disease can attack any organ and it could be that you have some imbalance in your hormones besides the thyroid. Good luck. Irish
