Correct

- "I will need to take Synthroid for the rest of my life."

- "I am secreting too much cortisol, which is what's causing my symptoms."

- "If we don't treat this, it can become life-threatening."

- "You are going to monitor my labs closely because electrolyte disturbances are common."

Rationale

Taking a medication like Synthroid would be for hypothyroidism, rather than hyperthyroidism. That would only make this condition worse. All other options are appropriate considerations for someone with Cushing's Disease.
