Re: i can confirm what youre saying

Trapper in regards to this case.

With my TSH being 1.14 or so.

"CT of her head showed hydrocephalus and a large cystic lesion in the region of the pituitary. MRI confirmed these findings (Figure 1a,b). Her baseline pituitary hormonal profile showed a very high prolactin of 398 500 mU/L (5650). The TSH was now raised at 22.0 mU/L, with a free thyroxine of 9.6 pmol/L (9.0-26.0); she had not taken thyroxine for about two weeks because of her confusion. Further assessment revealed a follicle stimulating hormone of 0.4 IU/mL, undetectable luteinizing hormone, growth hormone 0.3 IU/L with an IGF-1 4.0 nmol/L (6.0-30.0), and cortisol 765 nmol/L. These results indicated partial hypopituitarism. Thyroid peroxidase antibodies were strongly positive. She had a bitemporal hemianopia on perimetry. She was restarted on thyroxine replacement."

So will Iodine fix the pituitary gland? Will it help in regards to this?

It seems that this lady had a low TSH also

Not as low as mine (1.14 vs .4/.2)

What will Iodine and selenium do to the Pituitary?
