The pituitary gland is a small, bean-shaped gland in the center of the skull. It is located behind the bridge of the nose and beneath the hypothalamus.
Despite its small size, this gland influences nearly every part of your body and emotions. To illustrate, the pituitary works in sync with the thalamus and the hypothalamus to produce various hormones. These hormones then affect your sleep, mood, and metabolism. They also affect growth, sexual development, human reproduction, and more.
In fact, the pituitary gland oversees the entire endocrine system. (The endocrine system is a collection of glands that produce hormones. Glands are organs that create and put out hormones to do specific jobs in your body.)
So the pituitary gland communicates to the rest of the endocrine system. And the glands of that system communicate back. Thus, this important organ is often referred to as the master endocrine gland. As master of the endocrine system, it monitors and instructs the other glands and hormones in the body.
If the pituitary gland is out of balance, it can create hormonal disorders. Hormonal imbalances can cause a number of symptoms, some of which are listed below:
- Mood Swings
- Loss of Memory
- Loss of Sleep
- Sexual Dysfunction
