Growth Hormone and IGF

Hi, I'd appreciate some advice. I have panhypopituitarism. I was diagnosed with GH deficiency by insulin tolerance test and commenced treatment 6 months ago. Great improvements. I then got a call from the docs secretary saying "Stop the GH" - and no details. I believe he had just got my IGF results and had made the decision on that basis.

a month on and I am feeling awful - all the neg symptoms I had pre-treatment have returned. I want to propose that I recommence and part of the proposal would be whether the IGF results had an error. Does anyone know sources of error or reliablity in IGF testing please. I am on testosterone therapy but had not had an injection for 6weeks prior to the IGF test. Am also on Levothyroxine - the dose prior to these blood tests was 50mcg and he reduced this to 20 because my thyroid function was too high. I'd be really grateful for any ideas

Cool Re: Growth Hormone and IGF

I am sorry I can't be of help in regards your present question. This is my first post on this site. I think we may be able to be of help to each other as we share some common disorders. I need all the information I can get about AGH therapy, and obtaining the product.

I had a craniopharygioma in 1968, when I was 8 years old, and a second one in 1981.
I've had panypopiuitirism for 44 years, thus adrenal insufficiency, AGHD, diab
etes insipidus.
Comorbidities?: diabetes millitus, bipolar disorder II, ocular neromotosis.

I have had AGHD for 37 years. I've had few treatments and feel terrible. I have only
