Does hypopituitarism caused by an adenoma result in chronic hormone deficiency or is it more likely to be an episodic deficiency I have a macroadenoma causing hypopituitarism deficiency in, fsh/lh and acth and i' am currently taking medication for cortiso

Does hypopituitarism caused by an adenoma result in chronic hormone deficiency or is it more likely to be an episodic deficiency I have a macroadenoma causing hypopituitarism deficiency in, fsh/lh and acth and i' am currently taking medication for cortiso

Although : Although hypopituitarism is not episodic, you may indeed be hypothyroid. In the presence of a macroadenoma one cannot rely on the tsh. A low end of normal free thyroxine would, in my view, suggest that you are indeed hypothyroid especially if you have symptoms and have other hormonal deficiencies. I would tend to supplement you with thyroid hormone. You also may be growth hormone deficient. Growth hormone deficiency may cause fatigue. ...Read more

What can cause Diverticulitis, liver hepatic adenoma, rectal polyps and ovarian hemmoragic cysts.

Separate problems: There is no particular cause for any of these, and certainly no single thing that causes them all. These are separate problems, which I assume were detected by some sort of abdominal imaging, probably a CT scan or MRI. Speak with the doctor who ordered the test and take it from there. ...Read more

Depends: Hi. Pituitary macroadenomas can cause problems by either: 1) producing hormones, or 2) mass effect (compressing normal pituitary tissue and/or the pituitary stalk). Hormone-producing tumors that can cause weight gain produce ACTH or growth hormone (GH). ACTH and GH tumors have very characteristic physical exam findings. See an endocrinologist. Macroadenomas either need treatment or close follow up ...Read more
