  • Home blood glucose monitoring
  • Fine needle thyroid biopsies
  • Bone densitometry tests
  • Fasting and postprandial glucose determinations
  • Glycohemoglobin concentrations
  • Imaging studies of the sella turcica
  • Serum gonadotropin concentrations
  • Lipid profiles
  • Thyroid function studies
