Is Oxytocin Good For Patients With Pituitary Dysfunction?

Oxytocin may help patients with pituitary dysfunction Gino DeGraff/PhotoSpin

Patients with more complete hypopituitarism, including those with diabetes insipidus (arginine vasopressin deficiency) are more likely to have low levels and benefit from replacement.

Please note that this is not a true clinical study and patients or their insurance will be responsible for the costs of the testing and oxytocin. However I want to systematically observe the effects of oxytocin in patients with pituitary dysfunction.

If you are a current patient of mine and would like to have your oxytocin tested and if low, replaced, please contact my office by email. If you are not a current patient, we will need to see you first before we can administer the questionnaire and order the urine test.

For more information about my practice or to schedule an appointment, go to www.goodhormonehealth.com or email me at ]]>mail@goodhormonehealth.com]]>.
