Juner, Do you have Sheehan's Syndrome? I mentioned it to my Endo when I first saw him and he said the TSH is not "low" but in normal range. I have read quite a bit on this already. It was a horrible huge hemorrhage. The doctor cancelled a previously booked OR to get me in as I had lost SO much blood.
If you have been diagnosed with this, what were your symptoms? How about filling me in on what would be the appropriate lab tests?
I have read that it is possible to have this but not ALL anterior pituitary hormones be affected. I am going through menopause and my FSH is high.....in menopausal range 70, I believe. Also my morning cortisol was at the high end of range 22.1 (4.3-22.4) so my doctor does not suspect a problem with the pituitary. I have never had growth hormone (HGH or IGF-1 ?? ) tested.
Thanks for your help, Hoppy
Sam234, I am very interested in what your doctor has to say about the low prolactin level. Are any of your other hormones out of whack? From what I have been reading, the doctors do not seem to place much importance on low levels of prolactin......only high levels. Please post what you find out. Thanks
