The chief symptoms are fatigue/lethargy, severe weight gain, elevated glucose
intolerance, excessive hair growth, high blood
pressure, formation of stretch marks and psychological disturbances (depression/psychosis). The symptoms would be similar to the side effects of a synthetic corticosteroid, such as Prednisone.
Consider a comprehensive endocrine work-up if the initial impression was adrenal dysfunction, as other endocrine causes may present with similar symptomatology.
