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.
