  1. Hi there, get a referral to the endocrine department at the western infirmary in Glasgow. Are you still undiagnosed? @ jesslp - I got sent to an obesity specialist post my first pit tumour. Same story as you. Eating 1000 calories a day and putting on weight. Recorded EVERYTHING I ate for 8 weeks on an app and printed out everything for him.
