Pituitary disorders affect more than 20,000 Australians both young and old and impact many more of their carers, families and friends. They can occur as a result of tumours of the pituitary gland, complications in childbirth, abnormal pituitary gland development, radiation of areas close to the gland, head injury, or even infection.
The Australian Pituitary Foundation is a national peer-support charity for people with pituitary conditions, their families and those who care for them. Through social interaction, networking, education and hands-on workshops we provide practical support and information in addition to promoting pituitary awareness throughout Australia.
