Alteration in serum protein concentration is used commonly in clinical practice as a nonspecific indicator of underlying disease or to monitor disease activity. Although hypercortisolemia may affect protein metabolism directly or indirectly, data regarding alterations of levels of serum protein in a large series of patients with Cushing's syndrome (CS) have been lacking. We have now evaluated, retrospectively, the levels of circulating serum albumin, globulins, total proteins, and the albumin… CONTINUE READING
