Flattened Pituitary, is there an expert page?
Anon_41638 posted:
incidental "empty sella turcica" is
visible with the pituitary gland compressed against the sellar
on my MRI report.
I have found medical journal entries but no patient documentations on the internet.
have seen explanations that its...." when a woman is obese" (thanks but I have been active my whole life and I am over weight but not sitting on couch eating bon bons )
possible past cyst or csf pressure resulting in flattening to malformations.

is there an expert on the board anywhere..

Hiya and welcome,

We do have a Women's Health Community you are welcomed to join in and ask for support there.

But it's something you should talk to your doctor about. Share you concerns and questions with him/her as well.
Good Luck and Good health,
