Symptoms of Pituitary Disease - Suntree Endocrinology in Melbourne, FL - Dr. Ruben Pipek

The pituitary gland is a tiny organ, the size of a pea, found at the base of the brain. As the “master gland” of the body, it produces many hormones that travel throughout the body, directing certain processes or stimulating other glands to produce other hormones. Depending on which hormones are affected, symptoms of pituitary disease might include:

  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
  • Feeling cold
  • Feeling tired or weak
  • Menstrual changes or loss of menstrual periods in women
