Hi There, I made some inquiries and received the name of an endocrine pituitary specialist in Uruguay. Please let me know if you are interested, and I would be happy to provide it to you. -Carol

Hi There, I am not a medical professional but I would highly suggest that you be seen by an endocrinologist that specializes in pituitary medicine. Most endo's treat the more common disorders such as diabetes. With multiple pituitary hormones out of normal range or low-normal, you need a specialist to determine the cause. Pituitary issues are rare and complex so you need a physician who is experienced. Since you aren't located in the U.S., it will be harder to find a specialist. What country/city are you located in? The Pituitary Network Association (PNA)has a closed Facebook pituitary support group that has members in other countries. You might want to join and post asking for recommendations for specialists in your country and see if you get any responses. In Facebook search for "Pituitary Network Support Group". Request to join, and once you are approved, only the people in the group will see your posts. You can also try University hospitals in your country. Ask for the endocrine department, and then ask for a recommendation.

Low T / high normal TSH, low fT3&4 / low normal AM cortisol...what's causing was created by Stungrice

I don't know where to start with this, or how to go about treating it, or what is causing what, or if there is a direct connection between any of them and one of them is throwing the others off.I don't have a doctor that is learned in this anywhere around me. I am overseas. Not in the US. I did the tests as a pre-TRT reference. But now I'm not sure how to proceed. I would love to fix the low testosterone issue without having to resort to TRT. So I am wondering if any of the things that are off is what's causing the low T. And if that's the case, then which one? And why is it off and how to treat it (not patch it)?Or is it the low T that is causing everything else to go out of whack? Stats:37 / m / 248 lb / 6'4 / %26 bfLow T has been the case since I found out 7 years ago.
