Few years ago, my sight had dropped suddenly. Four different
specialists couldn't find any
defects in my eyes. No operations can be done on my eyes and glasses
can not help. Until
MRI test has found a little tumer in the brain up of my nose. They
suggested that this
tumor may be doing pressure on my nerve from eyes to the brain and they
suggested to make
operation to get rid of it. They reach the tumor through my
nose but they damaged a very tiny thing is called pituitary
Glands. The pituitary is
a gland attached to the base of the brain which secretes hormones that
govern the onset of
puberty, sexual development of reproductive function.and sexual
hair, voice beside many other activities not related to me (breast
menstrual cycles, infertility, vaginal dryness, and loss of some female
for women, growth hormones for children,...).Water levels in the body.
Also this gland
activate other gland functions. It is attached
by a stalk to the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that controls its
function. The hormones secreted by the pituitary are:
Also the pituitary gland controls the release of
FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone)
and LH (luteinizing hormone), which govern the onset of puberty, sexual
After the operation and loosing the pituitary glad, I have
Hypopituitarism. Because the
pituitary gland affects the other endocrine organs, effects of
hypopituitarism may be
gradual or sudden and dramatic. I gained weight(30 km), I become
dehydrate my face hair
stop growing ( I was happy for that), my voice become softer,
frequently urine ...The extra weight (30 km) affect my heart pressure.
So they give me a hormone replacement therapy. For not being
dehydrate and to control myself and to not be wet and
control my urine, I
have to puff minirin nasal in my nose on the night and morning.
Now I can not leave my place for long times. So I have to retire
computer many hours and shuttle between fridge to drink and Toilet .
All this because I lost this tiny gland . This shows the
mircles in our body which can not be there by chance.
