Cushing's disease

Cushing's disease

It is the most common hormonal disease of middle-aged and old horses, which develops due to abnormal overactivity of the pituitary gland. The disease also causes dysregulation of the stress hormone cortisol, which causes most of the symptoms. Cortisol acts for a short time to help with stress reactions, but its long-term presence causes many diseases. It can be made symptom-free with herbs, proper feeding and hormone replacement.
