Pituitary Disorder

The pituitary gland is a complex organ. It is composed of a posterior neurohypophysis and an anterior adenohypophysis. The neurohypophysis makes the hormone antidiuretic hormone that is instrumental in how the body manages water balance.

The adenohypophysis makes hormones that stimulate other endocrine organs of the body such as the thyroid gland, the adrenal gland and the testicles and ovaries.

The adenohypophysis makes growth hormone that must be produced and released into the body to allow for normal growth and development of children and is necessary for normal health in adults.

A deficiency or excess of one or more pituitary hormones may produce illness.
