Rachael Clare was diagnosed with a pituitary macroadenoma at age 21. Now at 28, in a frank and revealing chat, she shares her experiences and struggles with diagnosis and living with hypopituitarism. Her blog, The Mass and Me, gives us an honest look at her story to help bring more awareness to the challenges of this disease.
Our section for physicians and health care professionals launches today with a podcast by Dr. Lewis Blevins that discusses ten fascinating cases of patients with hypercortisolism. We hope this section will serve as a platform to share important information, which we hope will lead to a broader understanding of pituitary disease. We invite you to comment and provide feedback to share the teaching points that this type of involvement can provide to the awareness and treatment of a disease.
Stay tuned for much more from Dr. Blevins and colleagues. We encourage you to contact us to share interesting cases and information.
