    4 years ago when I went on TRT, my endocrinologist scheduled a MRI on my pituitary gland, and what came back was surprising. It showed I had a tumor 2mm (or was it 2cm) in size. However he said it was nothing to be concerned about, as he said 10% of the adult population have them and live with them without issue. Easy for him to say, as I was scared and fearful of what might become.

    Since the pituitary gland plays an important role in hormones and other things, I would highly suggest you all be aware of it and what it might be doing... for the sake of caution.

    The unknown question.

    Since the pituitary gland is responsible for such things like Growth Hormones and Thyroid, if we (people who take HGH and Thyroid supps, T3 T4) can these things affect the pituitary gland, like cause it to stop producing, like the way testosterone does to our own natural out put when we inject synthetic testosterone for cycles, TRT etc.? This is a question I have always wondered but never asked my endo, maybe now would be a good time.

    I think some people get scripted for gh because of that.

    IMHO...Yes. Hormones and endocrine glands are all intertwined so by altering one of them you could be altering any/all of them. The most important thing is you're AWARE of the tumor so you can stay on top of it. That (along with your TRT), gives you a built in reason to ask your Endo. any question you'd like about pretty much anything. And THAT's a good thing!...

    In answer to that , yes and no. Exogenous GH disrupts your natural production but when you stop it returns to normal. From all I've read anyways

    Ohhh well kneegro, where you wrote ''we who take hgh'' threw me off. Anybody with tumors or conditions like that should stay away from GH. Its speeds the growth of cells

    The pituitary gland is split into two portions, anterior and posterior.
    Anterior is responsible for secreting: PTH, HGH, TSH, FSH, LH, Prolactin, and some others.
    Posterior is responsible for: ADH & Oxytocin.

    Yes, taking any artificial hormone will cause the negative feedback loop to occur. Your body will stop secreting the hormone to maintain homeostasis. We, my class, recently had a discussion about some athletes long term use of GH and their inability to "rebound" after discontinuing the use after so many years.

    I always thought a pituitary tumor would spike something like a rise in prolactin for instance. I could be wrong, was years ago when I read the article. Hope everything goes well for you Raiden. I would however be completely honest with my endo at this point, of past usage. Hope it all works out brother!!
