Question: Hypopituitarism possible panhypopituitarism? My daughter is hypopituitarism currently she does not make enough of these hormones produced by the pituitary gland: FSH, TSH, GH. We are waiting on more bloodwork results to see if she is panhypopituitarism. My questions are: 1. What are the odds that she has panhypopituitarism if she is already not making enough of 3 of the hormones produced by the pituitary gland. 2. Does anyone know of any hypopituitarism / panhypopituitarism support groups?

Answer: My daughter was born two years ago with no pituitary gland. I've looked for support groups and not found any. I'm currently looking for other parents of children born without their pituitary gland in an effort to start a group. Although my daughter's and your daughter's diagnosis may be a bit different, the results are similar. My daughter takes Growth Hormone shots everyday and also takes Thyroxine because of the lack of TSH. I imagine yours takes the same, just possibly in different doses.
