Suggest treatment for Cushing's syndrome
It depends on the cause
the treatment depends on the cause. If the hormonal imbalance is cause by a pituitary tumor then the best treatment is the surgical one. Removing the tumor will - most likely - solve the problem. If an adrenal tumor is the problem, the same answer applies. There are also cases that the hormone is produced by tumors unrelated to normal cortisol secretion (ectopic production). Treating the primary tumor will make things better.
If no surgical approach is feasible, then drug treatment is indicated. Somatostatin analogues (pasireotide) decreased cortisol secretion and might help. Various suppressors of the adrenals may also help like ketoconazole and metyrapone.
I hope I've helped!
