How do you act when the pituitary gland is not working?

of Questioner »02 Sep 2018 19:06

If your LH / FSH is too low, what are the medical options for different scenarios?

E.g. Benign tumor, what do you do with medication, and can it still be that it no longer works properly? When will it be decided that they will be taken out? Or is the tumor just left and you just get a TRT? What then happens to the pituitary gland, the problem gets worse and the tumor may become malignant or how is it all going? There is not much to be found in Google and the Endo was not exactly knowledgeable about the topic.

I am currently waiting for the results of a large BB to check LH / FSH, among other things, and I just can't wait to know what happens when the values ​​are too low.

If there is a causal therapy (such as a mass) it will be fixed. If this is not necessary and / or possible, the corresponding axis (s) will be treated symptomatically according to the clinical situation and serum hormone levels.

Ever got the idea that the doctor doesn't want to / can't work on malignant processes and hypothetical questions unnecessarily if he doesn't even have a laboratory? (This is speculative and deeply unsettles the patient, because he usually does not remember the positive outlook, but the possible horror story)

If I have someone with a swollen ankle in the practice, I do an X-ray - and don't say that they can develop a compartment and lose their lower leg after an ankle surgery.

Space claim means? That it has too little space and then which one is created or how?

and what is meant by treated, hormone replacement or medication to make it work?

In principle, space occupation is another word for tumor. The word tumor is often misunderstood by laypeople, as it is often mistakenly equated with malignancy. Space claim sounds a bit more neutral.
It doesn't help you at all if someone here explains any possible therapies for potential diseases to you. The only thing that's going to happen is that you'll get even more involved in things that don't apply to you at all. Just wait and see what your doctor says.
