Uh - low level of what? Of LH and FSH?

Flushing - looking red and low testosterone...hmmm look up Cushing's syndrome. Elevated cortisol suppresses testosterones, makes you red, suppresses thyroid and other hormones like thyroid too... you may not have all the classic symptoms now and so this doc may not know what to do but the hidden ones should be enough for a neuro-endo. Do you have any pituitary centers?

I have googles pituarty centers and came up with nothing for Perth wa

Find an endo at a university and ask if they treat pituitary - or google neuro-endocrinologist. It may take a bit. I will PM you some leads.

Hey what is a dynamic MRI is that when they inject with a contrast I think they called about 2/3 into the scan or is this some other kind of scan

As long as the inject while you are in the MRI and don't pull you out - then it is dynamic. They then can take images while the contrast is going in and record the uptake - a lot of teeny tumors show up that way.
Dynamic is a technique. It does require skill - the contrast has to be done right or the pics will be too white or too black.
