About the Pituitary
The hypothalamus, located at the base of the brain, can be considered the coordinating center of the endocrine system. The hypothalamus delivers signals to the pituitary gland which then releases hormones that influence most endocrine systems in the body such as the thyroid gland, adrenal gland, and the gonads. The pituitary gland also releases hormones that influence growth, milk production, and water balance. If you have pituitary adenomas, acromegaly, hypo pituitary disease, or Cushing’s disease, or any other pituitary problem we recommend you come and see us.
