Changes in glucose metabolism based on 75-g oral glucose tolerance tests before and after surgery for adrenal Cushing's syndrome
Adrenal Cushing's syndrome (CS) is caused by cortisol-producing adrenal adenoma and is frequently accompanied by glucose metabolism disorders, which are characterized by increased insulin resistance and insufficient β-cell compensation. However, considering the rarity of CS, few studies have assessed whether the glucose metabolism disorders could be ameliorated by surgical treatment.
