  • What is Adrenal Insufficiency? " Mary is a 44-year-old who presents to her physician with symptoms of poor appetite "

    Mary is a 44-year-old journalist who presents to her physician with symptoms of poor appetite, nausea, lightheadedness and abdominal pains. These symptoms have been going on for the past year, and she has also noticed a 20-pound weight loss during this time period. Mary does not spend much time in the sun, however she has noticed some changes in the pigmentation of her skin.

    After review with her family physician, routine blood work shows that Mary has low sodium and high potassium levels and she is referred to an endocrinologist. Further investigations lead to a diagnosis of Addison's Disease (primary adrenal insufficiency), and Mary is treated with glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid hormonal therapy which completely resolve her symptoms. She is also given instructions on how to adjust her medication when she is acutely ill and how to maintain proper salt and fluid intake to avoid dehydration.

    Mary would benefit from continuing to work with her family physician and endocrinologist to manage her Addison's Disease. She may wish to work with a dietitian to understand the impact of her nutritional intake on her hydration levels as well as her vitamin and mineral intake. A pharmacist could help her manage her medications and supplements and avoid any adverse interactions with her prescribed medications. Finally, keeping stress levels down is important for patients with adrenal insufficiency. Taking yoga or getting a massage may help Mary in her day-to-day life.

  • Pituitary Gland Tumour - Effects on Health " Arlene is a 28-year-old graphic artist  "

    Arlene is a 28-year-old graphic artist who has been noticing changes in her menstrual cycle recently. She visits her family physician to share her symptoms which include the absence of her menstrual period for the past 6 months, as well as occasional discharge of milky fluid from her breasts. She is concerned by these symptoms, and also wonders if this is affecting her fertility as she hopes to conceive in the near future.

    Her family physician orders some blood tests and discovers that Arlene's prolactin level (the hormone that produces milk) is 10 times the normal level. She is referred to a local endocrinologist, and a subsequent MRI scan of her pituitary gland shows a lesion which is 1.3 cm in size. Arlene is diagnosed with a benign (non-cancerous) prolactin-secreting tumour of the pituitary gland, and she is started on oral medication to treat this. Shortly after starting treatment, she experiences a decrease in the breast discharge and her menstrual period resumes.

    Along with routine follow-up and monitoring from her endocrinologist and family physician, Arlene would benefit from having a detailed vision exam, as pituitary gland tumours can press on the optic nerve and create visual symptoms. She should also consider lifestyle changes to help with her ongoing treatment and to prepare her body for pregnancy, such as quitting smoking, limiting alcohol intake, and prenatal yoga. She may wish to consult with a naturopathic doctor or a registered dietitian to learn about vitamins and supplements that could support her health goals, and a pharmacist to understand any possible interactions between vitamins and medications that she is taking.
