Could: ACTH producing pituitary adenoma may cause psychiatric symptoms due to elevation of steroids. A large adenoma may impinge on brain structure and cause mental symptoms. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Yes: All cells of thyroid origin secrete thyroglobulin. Measuring it to follow a cancer ONLY makes since if the whole thyroid has been removed.

Hormones: A tropic hormone is a hormone secreted by one gland and then stimulates another gland; for example, the pituitary makes TSH, which targets the thyroid and causes the thyroid to make T4 and T3 (liothyronine). The thyroid hormones (T4, T3 (liothyronine)) target other organs (heart, CNS, GI, etc), but not really other glands, so are not really tropic hormones. ...Read more
Pituitary Tumor: The diagnosis of a pituitary tumor is more complex than thyroid levels. I encourage you to talk to a person specializing in endocrine function. To answer the question: thyroid levels can be high with a tumor secreting thyroid stimulating hormone (tsh), normal with a smaller (~1-3cm) nontsh secreting tumor, or usually low with a larger (>2.5cm) nontsh secreting tumor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
