Hypopituitarism


Hi Dr

After some discussions with my Endocrinologist he has provided me with the following test results:

TSH 1.28 (reference 0.5 - 5.0)
FT4 10 (reference 10 - 25)
Testosterone 328.5 ng/dl (reference 350-1010)
IGF-1 96 ug/l (reference 114-492)
Cortisol 5.1 umol/mol (reference 5-25)
Sodium 138 mmol/l (reference 135-145)
Pottasium 4.8 mmol// (reference 3.4-4.9)
Creatinine 107 umol/l (reference 40/130)

From what I understand through talking to my PCP he agrees that some hormone and mineral levels are below and above the respective ideal levels.

I am going to see another specialist to discuss these results as we are now discussing potential Hypopituitarism,

Wonder if you could be so kind as to give me your thoughts.

Thanks

Dear Myworlduk

i dont see definitive diagnosis of hypopituitarysm in your numbers. only Igf-1 is decreased but you dont have levels of growth hormone measured. Further testing is necessary to assume that diagnosis.
