Treatment depends on which kind of pituitary damage you have.

If your adrenal glands are not being regulated properly you will be given synthetic ACTH which will help you cope with stress.

If the sex hormones are affected, men will be given testosterone patches or injections, and women will be treated with tablets or patches containing oestrogens and progestogens.

Growth hormone (GH) can be artificially replaced by means of injections which will restore normal growth in children, and help with depression, loss of energy and a decrease in muscle strength in adults.
