The pituitary gland is a master regulator of the body's hormonal systems. Pituitary dysfunction can affect your mood, well being and vitality with debilitating clusters of symptoms.

Common symptoms of pituitary dysfunction include sleep disturbances, unrefreshing sleep, insomnia, fatigue, cognitive impairment, brain fog, anxiety, depression, poor circulation, immune problems (including frequent infections), muscle aches and joint pains, reduced capacity for stress, tiring easily after exertion, irritability and low libido.

The Pituitary Function Profile test measures key hormones produced by the pituitary gland, including TSH, FSH, LH, prolactin, growth hormone, and cortisol. Alterations in these hormones can impact diverse aspects of health, from metabolism and stress response to reproductive health and growth.

By identifying potential pituitary dysfunction or hormonal imbalances, and regularly monitoring for changes to your own natural hormone levels, you can work with practitioners to stay ahead of problems, and adapt lifestyle, diet and health interventions to maximise your well being and performance.

Markers Included In The Test

Cortisol: Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that plays a key role in managing stress, maintaining blood sugar levels, and regulating metabolism. Imbalances in cortisol levels can indicate issues with the body's stress response system, known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, and can be associated with conditions like chronic fatigue, depression, and adrenal disorders.

FSH: Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is produced by the pituitary gland and plays a key role in reproductive health. In women, it stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles and regulates the menstrual cycle, while in men, it aids in sperm production. Abnormal levels of FSH can signal reproductive issues such as infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome in women, and impaired sperm production in men.

Growth Hormone: Growth hormone (GH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland to stimulate growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration. High levels of GH can lead to abnormal growth, while low levels can result in poor growth, especially in children. In adults, low GH can cause fatigue, increased fat tissue, decreased muscle mass, and reduced bone density.

Luteinizing Hormone (LH): Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland and plays a key role in regulating the reproductive system. In women, high levels can indicate polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or menopause, while in men, it stimulates the production of testosterone and can signal issues with the testes if levels are abnormal.

TSH: Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland to regulate the production of thyroid hormones, which control the body's metabolism. Abnormal TSH levels can indicate thyroid disorders. High levels may suggest an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and low levels an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). Both conditions can cause a wide range of symptoms including fatigue, weight changes, and mood disturbances.

Prolactin: Prolactin is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that plays a role in over 300 separate functions, including immune regulation. Elevated levels in both sexes can lead to symptoms such as reduced sex drive and erectile dysfunction, while in women it can cause menstrual irregularities, infertility, and lactation in non-pregnant women.
