Hypopit: If all the hormones of the pituitary are low, you will manifest the symptoms of low thyroid, adrenal, sex hormones, etc. One form of acquired hypopit is sheehan's syndrome, which you can read about. http://www.yourhormones.info/endocrine_conditions/sheehans_syndrome.aspx. The sex hormones (lh and fsh) are among the first to go, and they would be among the first to check for.

Hypopit: If the diagnosis is made in the early stages and corrected by replacement of missing hormones there should be few, if any, physical changes.
