Hi There,

I agree with what Tammy said. You need to see an experienced pituitary endocrinologist. If you are located in the U.K here is a link to the U.K. Pituitary Foundation's list of known pituitary endocrine specialists:

Pituitary disorders are quite complex and are considered a rare disease. I can't stress enough how important it is for you to see a pituitary specialist to get a correct diagnosis and treatment!

Hello,

I am not a medical professional so I do not have answers for you. I do recommend that you find a pituitary endocrinologist that can help you get to the bottom of your symptoms. Most endocrinologists specialize in diabetes and metabolism, you need one that has experience with the pituitary hormones, both prolactin and DHEA are related to the pituitary. Specialists are more likely to have the training necessary to order the right testing and figure out what is going on. 

Here is a link to a list of pituitary specialists:

We also have a list of pituitary centers:

A pituitary center may also be helpful because they have multi-disciplinary teams that all work together to determine the best course of treatment based on your individual case.

I hope this information is helpful and that you are able to get some help soon. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Take care,

Tammy Mazzella
