  • deficiency in growth, amenorrhea, thyroid, adrenal insufficiency, pituitary or hypothalamus (respond to RHs) lesion
  • deficiency in growth, amenorrhea, thyroid, adrenal insufficiency, CNS lesion clues (facies, clefts)
  • pituitary vs hypoth (respond to RHs). GH↓: IGF-I↓, GH↓ even w stimulation (insulin, clonidine). TSH↓: T3,4↓. LH/FSH↓. ACTH↓: cortisol↓ even w hypoglycemia
  • primary (pituitary, normal RHs) or secondary (hypothalamus, no RHs). GH and FSH/LH goes first, then later TSH, ACTH, then Prl
  • GH, estrogen, progestin, testosterone, levothyroxin, hydrocortisone, prednisone
