See pediatrician: Call your pediatrician for an appointment. Some young men are normal and short. Some have delayed growth, and catch up later. A lot depends on your genetic inheritance, family height, and the like. Your pediatrician can evaluated your situation. If you do have an endocrine problem, like pituitary insufficiency, that can be confirmed with specific blood tests, and treatment started. Go call. ...Read more

Hormone (Definition)

A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more

What are different ways to stimulate the pituitary gland or increase growth hormone to grow taller?

What are different ways to stimulate the pituitary gland or increase growth hormone to grow taller?

Depends: If a kid is truly growth hormone deficient by test, artificial hormone can return them to a normal growth rate. Those who are just behind, but growing at a normal rate, could speed things up with hormone injections, but would not grow taller than they would have naturally.If they are growing normally, a balanced diet, rest and exercise permit normal growth. No diet or supplements boost the final. ...Read more

Incidental finding in CT: Fdg uptake suvmax3.8 in pituitary gland.subsequent MRI normal. Hormones normal. Should I be worried?

Incidental finding in CT: Fdg uptake suvmax3.8 in pituitary gland.subsequent MRI normal. Hormones normal. Should I be worried?

Probably OK: Some researchers use SUVmax of 4.1 before calling the pituitary abnormal. In those cases when the pituitary does have increased FDG uptake, a normal MRI will rule out at adenomas, which are usually the cause of increased activity. If the MRI was negative and you have no symptoms, then these are good signs. ...Read more

Would intranasal oxytocin go from lungs to the bloodstream and act as a hormone? I'm wondering since I don't have a pituitary gland, so no OT hormone.

Would intranasal oxytocin go from lungs to the bloodstream and act as a hormone? I'm wondering since I don't have a pituitary gland, so no OT hormone.

Oxytocin: Oxytocin is a peptide made by the hypothalamus & stored/secreted by the posterior pituitary gland. When administered intranasally, it can act on the breasts and uterus via the systemic blood circulation. However, it's unclear whether it can cross the blood-brain barrier directly to affect the brain. http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/neuroskeptic/2013/12/08/spinal-taps-save-oxytocin-research/ ...Read more

What hormone is released from the pituitary gland in females?

What hormone is released from the pituitary gland in females?

Many hormones: Lh (leutinizing hormone); fsh (follicular stim hormone); gh (growth hormone); TSH (thyroid stim hormone); acth (adrenocorticotropic hormone); prolactin. The posterior pituitary makes oxytocin and vasopressin. Men have the same hormones in pituitary; just different responses from the gonads. ...Read more

Can you tell me how the hypothalamus control the production and release of hormones of the pituitary gland?

Can you tell me how the hypothalamus control the production and release of hormones of the pituitary gland?

Nerve tracts: There are a set of nerve tracts from the hypothalamus that release hormones into the pituitary blood supply. The hormones are called "releasing hormones", and they cause the pituitary to release hormone. Eg. Hypothalamic TRH (thyrotropin releasing hormone) causes the pituitary to release TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). ...Read more

My pituitary gland doesn't work well, so i take substitutional hydrocortison and growth hormone. What if the pit. Gland recovers, how do I notice?

Not challenging: Depending upon the etiology of the low pituitary issues, the gland may improve functionally, but could conceivably could also slightly deteriorate over time. Yet by checking pituitary reserve blood studies, determinations of hormonal needs can be adjusted and stabilized. Anticipate that your doctors will stay ahead of this and modify your therapies, prn, and instruct when to phone. ...Read more

Pituitary Gland (Definition)

The pituitary is the source of several hormonal stimulation pathways, such as acth to stimulate the adrenal gland, TSH for the thyroid, but the posterior aspect deals with fluid and ...Read more
