DIABETES AND ENDOCRINE SYSTEM

Endocrine System

Hypopituitarism is a disorder in which your pituitary gland fails to produce one or more of its hormones, or doesn't produce enough of them. A short supply of one or more of these pituitary hormones can affect any number of your body's routine functions.

While physicians rarely diagnose hypopituitarism, they should be aware of the signs and symptoms that characterize this disorder. The pituitary gland plays a major role in the endocrine system, linking the endocrine system and the CNS.

The pituitary is a small bean-shaped gland located at the base of your brain, somewhat behind your nose and between your ears. It's part of your endocrine system, which consists of glands that produce hormones that regulate processes throughout your body. Besides the pituitary gland, the endocrine system includes the thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries (in females) and testicles (in men).

Signs and symptoms

Hypopituitarism is often progressive. Although the signs and symptoms can occur suddenly, they tend to develop gradually. They're sometimes vague and subtle, and may be overlooked for many months or even years.

Signs and symptoms of hypopituitarism vary, depending on which pituitary hormones are deficient. The signs and symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue

  • A decline in energy

  • Muscle weakness

  • Lightheadedness

  • Nausea

  • Constipation

  • Weight loss

  • A decline in appetite

  • Abdominal discomfort

  • Sensitivity to Cold  or difficulty staying warm

  • Deterioration of vision

  • Loss of underarm and pubic hair

  • Joint stiffness

  • Hoarseness

  • Facial puffiness

  • Thirst and excess urination

  • Low blood pressure

  • Headaches

If you're a man, you may also have symptoms such as:

  • Loss of interest in sexual activity

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Decrease in facial hair

If you're a woman, you may develop:

  • Irregular or stopped menstrual periods

  • Infertility

  • Inability to produce milk for breastfeeding

Children may experience stunted growth and short stature.
