Can this be hypopituitairism: high cortisol, highish prolactin, low HGH, lowish TSH, low LH and FSH in luteal phase, (lowish in follicular), low ADH (vasopressin)?

Can this be hypopituitairism: high cortisol, highish prolactin, low HGH, lowish TSH, low LH and FSH in luteal phase, (lowish in follicular), low ADH (vasopressin)?

Pituitary: It is difficult to diagnose hypopituitarism vased on labs you provided. High cortisol goes against hypopituitarism. High prolactin can lower FSH and LH.. TSH normal range is 0.3-4.. If pituitary dysfunction is suspected , we check Free T4, not TSH.. I hope this answers your question ...Read more

Fsh (Definition)

Fsh is a peptide hormone synthesized in the anterior (forward) pituitary gland in both males and females. The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...Read more

ACTH stimulation: If you have features of both problems, the male hormone levels and menstrual irregularities and infertility are the hallmarks of a diagnosis of PCOS. What does your Endo or Gyne/Endo say about this ? Ask them for answers, which may include an ACTH stim test to see how your pituitary axis is functioning to start with, followed by more adrenal function testing... ...Read more

Does growth hormone deficiency lower testosterone levels?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
3 doctors agreed:
Does growth hormone deficiency lower testosterone levels?

No: Your pituitary controls a number of hormones including thyroid, growth, testosterone & estradiol, among others. While growth hormone deficiency won't "lower" testosterone, pituitary damage leading to growth hormone deficiency can also lead to hypogonadism or low testosterone. It's also common to have a defect in just one hormone rather than all. Traumatic brain injury is not a major concern. ...Read more

Fsh, lh follicular stimulating hormone (fsh) 4.96 and LH is 2.89 .Is this normal?

Fsh, lh
follicular stimulating hormone
(fsh)
4.96 and LH is 2.89 .Is this normal?

Probably: Normal ranges can vary from lab to lab, so the 1st step would be to compare your results to the reference range, usually listed in parentheses such as (1.5 - 10). For hormone tests, however, results have to be interpreted in the context of what is happening clinically. Expected values for someone who is pregnant, or on birth control pills, or who should be ovulating at the time could all differ. ...Read more

High Total T, high SHBG, low Free T, very high FSH (22.8), normal LH, normal prolactin, low estradiol, normal TSH, normal metabolic and CBC. Ideas?

Hormone tests: By themselves, without context, these labs don't say much of anything. They are confusing, and beg the question of why they are being done. Best to see an Endocrinologist. ...Read more

PCOS: PCOS is diagnosed by 1) irregular periods, 2) high androgen levels (such as testosterone), and/or 3) many small ovarian follicle cysts, usually seen on ultrasound. These criteria are the Rotterdam/ESHRE diagnostic criteria, the Androgen excess Society has a similar but slightly different criterion. None of the tests you have listed are used for diagnosing PCOS. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more
