pituitary adenoma

Hi I am a 56 year old woman who was diagnosed with an prolactin producing adenoma about 12 years ago. I was treated with dostinex. I haven't taken any meds for several years now as my last mri showed it to have shrunk. I do not have any of the symptoms like breast discharge, either. I have been having thyroid problems with my tsh at .055 and free t3 low as well. I had been put on Armour30 2x daily but these are the results after 2 months. I still could not lose any weight and continue to have no energy as well as many other symptoms. My doctor has switched me to a compound of levothyroxine/liothyronine38mcg/9m(can't read measurement). Could anything with my pituitary be causing this. It seems as though my thyroid is being screamed at to produce hormone but it is not. I was told that I had calcification in my thyroid about 26 years ago. Is this significant? Thanks for your help. Lynn

It is possible that you have central (aka pituitary) hypothryoidism.

Yeah, my tumor changed sizes all the time. It was really moving all over. MRIs are ok, but not absolutely accurate as pit tumors are tiny...

Does your doctor test the rest of your hormones - especially growth hormone?

We are not doctors - so... that can make things difficult here. Also, a follicular adenoma does not say much as in where (I will assume somewhere in the brain since you are posting in this forum) but I had one in my thyroid... I personally do not know of a medication to treat - mine was surgically removed.
Your post does not have much do to do with the previous post - why not start a new thread?
