What treatments have worked for others? Newbie was created by BRENDA_1

Hi, I am new to the forum. I have Addison's Disease (primary adrenal failure) and hypopituitarism. Following removal of a pituitary tumour in 2011, my quality of life has seriously deteriorated. Although all of my hormone levels, except GH, are normal, I don't seem to be getting better. I will be starting GH soon, but my endocrinologist has said I should try not to pin all of my hopes on this treatment, as results can vary greatly from person to person. If GH replacement doesn't work, I don't know if there is any further options for treatment available.

So, I ask all of you: what treatments have helped alleviate your hypopituitary symptoms? Also, what lifestyle changes or alterations in your daily routine have helped?

I hope I might get a reply.
Thank you.
