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

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
