Pituitary

The pituitary gland is associated with another specialised organ called the hypothalamus. Both these parts are located at the base of the brain. The hypothalamus controls and directs the pituitary gland to manage the secretion of hormones from other glands for aiding processes like growth, stress management and reproduction. The pituitary gland is oval and has two parts which are the anterior pituitary and posterior pituitary. Their functions are discussed as follows:

Growth hormone is secreted to encourage the growth of the body, typically the muscles and bones.

The thyroid-stimulating hormone triggers the thyroid gland to produce hormones that play key roles in regulating metabolism.

Adrenocorticotropic hormone activates the adrenal gland to produce cortisol, aldosterone and some other hormones which contribute to stress management and maintaining blood pressure.

Follicle-stimulating hormone deals with the production of estrogen and development of egg cells in women, as well as sperm cell production in men.

Endorphins are naturally produced pain relievers for the body. The posterior pituitary secretes hormones like

Vasopressin helps the body in retaining water and preventing dehydration.

Oxytocin helps in pregnancy by aiding in the secretion of breast milk and contraction of the uterus during childbirth.

The list of ailments that come under Pituitary are:

  • Pituitary insufficiency (See:Hypopituitarism)
    Pituitary tumors

Hypothesis

Conditions or diseases which affect the pituitary, hinder its abilities to perform various functions. A decrease or increase in the number of hormones secreted could result in an imbalance in the body’s functions and affect the wellness of one’s mental health consequences. Some ailments affecting the pituitary gland are Pituitary tumours, Hypopituitarism, Acromegaly and Cushing’s disease. An overview of these ailments are as follows:

Pituitary tumours: Pituitary tumours are abnormal growths of tissue on the gland, which interferes with the number of hormones that it secretes. Mostly, these tumours are noncancerous and do not spread beyond the neighbouring tissues of the gland. Their emergence on the gland may or may not show symptoms. The visible symptoms to detect Pituitary tumours are headache and vision loss, while hormonal imbalance is also an important sign to detect these.

Hypopituitarism: As the name suggests, hypopituitarism means the under-performance of the pituitary gland, because the hypo-prefix means ‘below normal’. This results in a shortage in supply of the hormones released by the gland.

Hypopituitarism may show different symptoms in different patients, depending on the hormone which is being produced less.
Acromegaly: This happens when the pituitary gland produces an excess of the Growth hormone (GH), which triggers an abnormal increase in the growth of hands, feet and jawbones. It mostly affects middle-aged people and progresses very slowly throughout the years. This disorder occurs mostly as an aftermath of pituitary tumours or non-pituitary tumours in other parts of the body like lungs and pancreas.

Cushing’s disease: Common cause of this disease is the presence of a tumour in or around the pituitary gland. As a consequence, the gland releases more cortisol hormones than needed, which slows down the body’s capability to heal bruises, causes purple stretch marks on the skin and deposition of fatty tissues in the body, especially the face and upper back.
The tumours in Pituitary can be dissolved or shrunk by using a combination of supplements. It is advised that prior to finalising on surgery try Zyropathy eliminate tumour because the surgery may result in severe complications, damage to pituitary affecting functionality and possibility of reoccurrence of the tumour will always exist.
