A 60-year-old man presents to your clinic one month following partial gastrectomy for a gastric tumor. Hypopituitarism is the decreased (hypo) secretion of one or more of the eight hormones normally produced by the pituitary gland.
The pituitary gland is a small small bean-shaped gland that protrudes off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain.
The drawing below shows the hormones and the target organs of those hormones that each pituitary lobe produces.

The pituitary hormones help control (regulate) many of the body's processes, and below are a list of these pituitary-regulated processes. Early symptoms are divided into GI complaints (abdominal pain, diarrhea, borborygmi, bloating, and nausea) and vasomotor complaints (flushing, palpitation, perspiration, tachycardia, hypotension, and even syncope) and late symptoms include hypoglycemia, perspiration, hunger, fatigue, and syncope.
The pituitary gland consists of two lobes; the anterior pituitary lobe and the posterior pituitary lobe.
Despite its small size, the pituitary gland secretes hormone signals to other endocrine glands throughout the body and thereby influences nearly every part of the body.

Barium fluoroscopy and radionuclide scintigraphy are also used to see if there is premature emptying of the stomach.
