Is there a connection between hypothyroidism, hypothalamic dysfunction, pituitary dysfunction & Marfan syndrome?
So, "Adrenal Fatigue" is unaccepted/discredited. What about "hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction"? Is THAT an accepted diagnosis? Are the 2 related?
Not a diagnosis: Adrenal fatigue is no longer used as diagnostic methods have become more sensitive and specific. Hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction is not a diagnosis. It's a general description for several disorders where the exact site of dysfunction cannot be determined. For example, in disorders of antidiuretic hormone, the exact site of dysfunction is not determinable. The term signals this uncertainty. ...Read more

Typically the last to go from a pituitary insult is TSH and acth (thyroid and adrenal), but odd things can occur. A micro tumor does not usually damage the rest of the pituitary, but may produce excess hormone (eg. Prolactin, acth). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Low Testostorone, low free T, low SBGH, normal LH, FSH, and TSH. Had increase in T with clomid. Does this rule out pituitary / hypothalamus problem?
Here are some ...: Congratulate for improving T with Clomid, but need to correlate T-level with clinical low-T-related Sx. This indicates HPT(hypothalamus-pituitary-testicular) axis still functions but suggests some dysfunction in hypothalamus, which has been observed in those having taken CNS-effecting drugs such as opiates for a long duration. Nonetheless, you're in best possible care and continue its use. Best .. ...Read more
