The expert team of care providers and healthcare professionals at Diabetes and Metabolic Wellness Center specialize in the treatment and management of pituitary disorders and tumors.
What are Pituitary Disorders?
The pituitary gland affects the growth of your body, the functions of other glands, and several organs. There are many different types of pituitary disorders. Pituitary disorders occur when your pituitary gland produces either an excessive amount or not enough of a hormone. Pituitary disorders are most often caused by a cancerous or non-cancerous tumor or cyst, but can also be caused by a head injury in some cases. Pituitary disorders we treat at Diabetes and Metabolic Wellness Center include, but are not limited to:
- Low testosterone
- Pituitary tumors
- Cushing’s disease
- Hypothalamic insufficiency
- Pituitary apoplexy
Symptoms of pituitary disorders can be easily confused for other conditions. Symptoms can include extreme fatigue, headaches, unexplained dizziness, nausea, or increase in weight, loss of libido, even Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
