Pituitary : Your symptoms and lab results are consistent with pituitary dysfunction. The most common cause of this is a pituitary tumor which are present in some form in as many as 25% of the population. You should see an endocrine doctor for additional blood work and an MRI of the brain.

Many: High prolactin could be a pituitary tumor or caused by medications like mood stabilizers. High cortisol could be stress, or cushings, low t could be due to prolactinoma, stress, etc. Go to a4m.Com and use physician locator to find a local functional medicine doctor to help you do appropriate testing to figure this out. Alternatively a local endocrinologist should be able to help.
