What About my Dhea and Prolactin both HIGH

I am being told by doctors so far that with me having DHEA levels at 1499  I may have a tumar in the Adrenal glands. They checked my adrenals glands with CT scan on my back and opended me up to see if ther is cists on my ovaries and so far nothing. I had an MRI done months before my dhea levels where discovered and they said there found know tumar
Now I have a high prolactin and I'm not pregnant so now there talking about checking to see if I have a tumar in the pituitary gland.
Why would both the Adrenal glands and the Pituitary glands be out of wak at the same time?

I have an appointment on Nov 10th 2009 to see an endocrinoligest I hope he can tell me whats wrong.
My thyroid tests are comng back normal.

This discussion is related to High levels of DHEA, ACTH, Prolactin, Cortisol and TSH.

adrenal glands are also affected by pituitary.  So adrenal gland problems can happen by themselves at the adrenal glands, or be caused by misfunction of the pituitary.

let us know how you go with your doctor's appointment tomorrow.
