Hi Judy and Kerry

The use of Cypro has been followed here since 2000.  Here are a couple of early messages.

In the early years Cypro was recommended to use to bring down insulin.  There is little research to show it works and the majority of members who have used it found it did not. Cypro has most recently been suggested by researchers (without additional research) and the pharmaceutical company funding them, to be used when the recommended dose of 3 mg of Prascend does not work to control PPID.

Judy - a very likely possibility with your current blood work is error through mishandling but we could use a lot more detail.  Was there a glucose taken as well?    Appetite issue with pergolide can be helped iwth the use of adaptogens, ie APF. It is usually transient. Uncontrolled PPID does affect insulin, so having the Cushing's under control is needed.  Might you have a Case History on Star?  Seeing the big picture would be a big help.
