Cushing's disease (hyperadrenocorticism) is a condition that results from the overproduction of too much in the body. In the normal dog, the pituitary gland produces a hormone called ACTH, which stimulates the adrenal gland to produce the steroid hormone glucocorticoid necessary for the function of many systems in the body.
