Hypopituitarism | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

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.
