How To Improve Pituitary Gland Function
Adrenal or pituitary: What is the cause of your addison's? If the adrenals have failed, then the pituitary may be working fine, but the pituitary acth cannot stimulate a dead adrenal. If the pituitary is the cause of the addison's, then other hormones may also be affected. Best to discuss with your endocrinologist. ...Read more

Common use: Giving HCG for men who have had cryptorchidism is standard. Hcg is also widely used to restore testicular volume and normal male hormonal production to men who are taking / have taken testosterone or anabolic steroids, but there is no standard protocol. Your personal physician may be a better source of information than a provider of "street" HCG and treatment will be safer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Indirect : The adrenal gland makes hormones that effect the BP and the kidneys handling of fluids and potassium. But doesn't effect the kidney function directly. Any change in BP that is significant can effect the kidney either lower or higher. So thought the adrenals sit on top of the kidney it doesn't control the GFR. ...Read more

Affect metabolism : It is a complex question. Briefly, low function of thyroid called hypothyroidism will slow down the using of glucose. If patient has diabetes, hypothyroidism may worsen diabetes, but patient with hypothyroidism may slow down intake of food, so the taking calories may decrease so the blood auger level may be even out. Vise visa hyperthyroidism may have the opposite effect. ...Read more
No: An adrenal adenoma is a benign tumor of the adrenal gland. It typically causes no complications. Someimes these tumors become "active" or "functioning" producing hormones, often in excess of what the adrenal glands typically produce. This excess of hormones can cause primary aldosteronism, Cushing's syndrome and other medical conditions. They do not stop hormone production.once functional. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have elevated prolactin, not due to pituitary tumor, will
cabergoline enable thyroid and estrogen/progesterone ratio
to all become balanced?
Probably: High prolactin can result from certain medications, narcotics, stress, as well as from pituitary tumors that are too small to see on imaging studies. High prolactin will cause female pituitary hormone levels to become abnormal, resulting in irregular periods or loss of periods. Cabergoline will lower prolactin and improve this imbalance. High prolactin does not typically cause abnormal thyroid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Growth Hormone: The pituitary makes a number of hormones that control the thyroid, adrenal, milk production, reproduction, etc. One of these hormones is growth hormone (gh). A pituitary tumor can overproduce a hormone, and when gh is too high, it causes acromegaly. There are a number of medications that help lower the gh and treat acromegaly, but surgery is usually required. ...Read more

What does Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) do for pituitary gland tumors? Can it negatively affect a benign pituitary gland tumor?
Pituitary hormones: It is possible that some pituitary hormones do not work, and others do work. For example, after a pituitary insult (tumor, trauma, etc), you could lose the gonadotropins (fsh, lh), but still have preserved acth and TSH (adrenal and thyroid). Some of this is related to the pituitary anatomy, and the locations of certain populations of cells. ...Read more
Endocrinology: Hi. Hormones are signaling molecules made in one place (their gland) and circulate via the bloodstream to regulate function at other tissues ("target tissues"). Main hormone categories are peptide/protein (e.g., insulin), steroid (e.g., cortisol), biogenic amine (e.g., epinephrine), others. Typically there is feedback regulation of hormone secretion to keep some process in a normal range. ...Read more
Why adrenal gland?: Unless you have cushing's syndrome, which is a rare abnormality in which the adrenal glands are producing too much cortisone, there is no treatment for the adrenal glands that will cause weight loss. Why do you think you have an adrenal gland problem? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Adrenal insufficient: If you have insufficient adrenal gland, from surgical resection or other cause, (addison disease) your doctor can replace adrenal hormone with medication, that you take orally. For some endocrine glands (parathyroid) the glands are surgically reimplanted because there is no oral medication that can be given. So the PTH gland is moved and preserved to continue making its hormone. Be well. ...Read more
