Don’t forget hormones!

 

I thought you might be interested to know that last Tuesday’s ‘Inside Health’ featured post-traumatic hypopituitarism. I’m sorry to be slow to let you know,

the catch-up link is http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01rr37c (20 mins into the programme). It’s only available for today. However I can forward by e mail a transcript if anyone would like to read it.

 

As the neurosurgeon on the programme points out, up to a million people may have PTHP in the UK, undiagnosed, that’s one in 60, so you probably know at least one person with it! Think of a friend or relative who seems depressed, who maybe has been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, and please let him or her know about this possibility. An appointment with an endocrinologist might mean a transformed quality of life, and might even save his/her life.
