Hello,

I am not a medical professional so I cannot provide medical advice. What I do suggest is that you see an endocrinologist that specializes in treating people with pituitary disorders. An experienced endocrinologist can run the appropriate tests to determine the pituitary function and determine the course of treatment that is right for you.

There is a list of physicians that are experienced at treating people with pituitary disorders on our website. Here is a link

We also have a list of pituitary centers on our website. Here is a link to that page:

Feel free to contact us at (805) 499-9973 or [email protected] if you would like more information.

Take care,
Tammy

Hypopituitarism damaged and weight gain was created by lunddk

Hi everyone,

Im a man at 29 years old. Last year in may, I went under a surgery to remove a philocytic brain tumor.

The doctors couldnt remove all the tumour, and will operating they damaged the pituitary.

After the episode, I was sent home with a notice of: I need to recieve Euthyrox for a lifelong period.
The Euthyrox medicine dont seems to work. I run to the fitness everyday and burn 300-500 calories. And my diet is around 1100 calorie at maximum. - So I'm trying hard to loose weight but will no succes.

I can't be the only one going through this experience ?

So what do you people do?? Anyone who' have went over the stage of massive weight gain?

Is it medicine or do I need to try something else?
