Does resetting the hypothalamus affect pituitary tumor?

Does resetting the hypothalamus affect pituitary tumor?

Depends on case: If you mean suppressing the gland, such as using bromocryptine for a pituitary adenoma, it can help control the symtpoms and prolactinomas can shrink. For other tumors, this may not be the case art all - for metastases to the pituitary or for craniopharyngioma, addressing hormone function generally does not affect the tumor's growth, although hormone symptoms can be relieved quite a bit. ...Read more

Does MS involve the hypothalamus?

Yes, it surely can: There is considerable evidence that involvement of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis can play a role in fatigue. Many ms patients do develop a variety of sleep disorders and a loss of hypocretin-i-secreting cells may be due to autoimmune mechanisms, perhaps enhancing daytime sleepiness.
