Growth hormone is 0.1ng/ml, acth is 6pg/ml, adh (vasopressin) is <0.5. Something wrong with the pitatury gland?

In brief: Treat the numbers?

Advice: doctors treat patients and not numbers.
The ACTH and ADH (vasopressin) numbers can't be interpreted without the clinical context- it is like a fish out of water. After all, the values may be due to a lab error. It's best to ask this question with the doctor who you visited and ordered the tests.
