Pituitary Malfunction Causes Other Disorders?
Anyone know anything about pituitary/hypothalamus causing diabetes, low thyroid, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc.?
I looked for a forum in the alphabetic list. We could start one. Sounds important, doesn't it? I did a web search and only found that there can be an infection, or benign tumors, that most doctors haven't studied it much, and that patients can go home the same day, sometimes, after having surgery through the nose. (I'm deathly afraid of any surgery.)
A chiropracter who was speaker for a thyroid support group meeting had some kind of medicine for pituitary, probably herbs, and is it true they can't write prescriptions? He does a strange (to me) test where the patient tries to hold an arm horizontal and he tries to push it down while touching certain spots on the body. If the arm goes down, that's a trouble spot. The one for pituitary is on the head. Some say this is a familiar test, usually for allergies.
