Hypopituitarism: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

DM - Endocrinology, MD Medicine
Endocrinologist, Faridabad
Hypopituitarism: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Hypopituitarism is defined as a condition in which the pituitary gland is unable to produce enough hormones. Under-secretion of pituitary hormones affects reproduction, body growth and blood pressure. It also results in pre-mature aging.

The pituitary gland is a small bean-shaped gland situated at the base of your brain, behind your nose and between your ears. Despite its size, this gland secretes hormones that influence nearly every part of your body.

In hypopituitarism, you have a short supply of one or more of these pituitary hormones. This deficiency can affect any number of your body's routine functions, such as growth, blood pressure and reproduction.

Few Causes:

  1. Head injury

  2. Tuberculosis

  3. Radiation treatment

  4. Stroke

  5. Brain tumors

  6. Brain surgery

  7. Meningitis (brain infection)

  8. Hypophysitis (autoimmune inflammatory disorder)

  9. Sarcoidosis is an infiltrative (accumulation of cells and tissues in excess of the normal amount) disease which occurs in various organs.

  10. Impaired hormone secretion by the pituitary gland is caused by genetic mutations.

  11. Sheehan’s syndrome: It is a condition in which the pituitary gland gets damaged due to severe blood loss during childbirth.

  12. Hypothalamus (a part of the brain which is located above the pituitary gland) diseases wherein the pituitary activities are directly affected by the hypothalamus.

Symptoms:

  1. Fatigue

  2. Reduced sex drive

  3. Decreased appetite

  4. Anemia

  5. Irregular menstruation, pubic hair loss, hot flashes (feverish heat), and inability to breast-feed properly because of low breast milk production).

  6. Dwarfism in children

  7. Weight loss

  8. Increased sensitivity to cold temperature

  9. Infertility

  10. Facial puffiness

  11. Reduction in body hair or facial hair

Treatment Options:

  1. Hormone replacement drugs include:

    • Corticosteroids: Adrenocorticotropic hormone deficiency leads to low production of adrenal hormones (different kinds of hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin, produced in the endocrine glands). These drugs act as a replacement of adrenal hormones.

    • Growth hormone: Growth hormone, also known as somatropin, is injected beneath the skin. This treatment method promotes growth, which balances the height in children. Growth hormone deficiency in adults is also cured by these medications to some extent.

  2. Surgery: Surgical procedure is needed if the condition of hypopituitarism is the result of a tumor. The doctor will remove the tumor through surgery, thus resulting in normal growth.

  3. Radiation: Radiation therapy helps in reducing the size of the tumor which causes stunted growth or pre-mature aging. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Dear , it appears that due to prolonged diabetes your large arteries at leg are getting affected. In a diabetic person it is a serious sign of compromise of blood supply to the limb. I suggest you to immediately get a colour doppler of the lower limb done and discuss this issue with your physician.

I am a 42 year old male and cannot sleep properly due to obstructive sleep apnea also I am overweight. Please tell me what to do?

Post Graduate Diploma In Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For obstructive sleep apnea to be cured you will have to lose weight. And for weight loss you definitely need to streamline your lifestyle by any modification that it may require like altering eating pattern, exercise and stress relief. The real need for weight loss is purely motivation from your end. Incase you are interested in getting professional help on your diet pls feel free to consult me privately online.

Hello sir. I am suffering from migraine. Can you please suggest me some tips. Which make me reduce pain.

BHMS
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Migraine can be triggered by various factors like exposure to sun for long hours, delayed meals, indigestion, stress, loss of sleep etc. Identify those trigger points for yourself and avoid them. Heat is a prominent causative factor in this weather. Drink lots of water, take your meals on time and include fruits with lot of water content like water melon and musk melon in your diet. For specific medicinal treatment, you need to give a detailed case history. Hope this helps. Regards, Dr. Anupama mehta.

Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines — substances that are found naturally in your body, as well as in certain foods, such as steak, organ meats and seafood. Other foods also promote higher levels of uric acid, such as alcoholic beverages, especially beer, and drinks sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose). Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid can build up, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation and swelling, called Gout. Homoeopathy offers permanent cure for such tendency since it is the susceptibility which makes one more prone for high uric acid while under same circumstances other people are normal . Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines.
