Re: Can TSH be high and still have a pituitary disorder?
If you do decide to go off the hydrocortisone, make sure the doctor tappers you off over a period of time. This can be dangerous if you quit cold turkey. If your pituitary is working to some degree, how does that help you since you would still need meds to feel like a normal human. It might be worth tappering off just the hydrocortisone and see what happens, however, my endo. determined that since my pituitary wasn't sending the right signal to my thyroid and testes, it probably wasn't sending it to my adrenals either and didn't think tapering off the hydrocortisone was worth it.
