Alternate Names : Pituitary Gland Deficiency
What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?
A decrease in pituitary gland activity can result in low levels of:
sex hormones. This can reduce the sex drive, affect the ability to have children or breastfeed, and cause menstrual cycle problems in women.
thyroid hormone, known as hypothyroidism. This can cause fatigue, weight gain, slow heartbeat, and impaired thinking.
adrenal hormone. This may result in salt imbalances, fatigue, and low blood pressure.
growth hormone. This may cause children to be abnormally short.
