Ah, Mary, this is a good video!! Some notes I made while listening:

 

One cell gone awry.... Interesting...

 

Order of frequency:

prolactinoma

overproduction GH

Cushing's--(her comment of "look and feel very sick " says to me she gets it!)

 

Patient is at the HEAD of [his/her] team.

 

"Patients can and should be active participants in their own care. ...Should have access to support.....Groups who have websites available...."

 

Well, she sure sounds like a doctor who understands. I was impressed!

 

Thank you for sharing!!

 

Hugs,

Robin

Hmmmm...my vision problems (intermittent blind-spot in my right eye) should have alerted doctors to something...

I agree with the doctor's closing remarks---pituitary disease affects mood and emotion---and patients need a support group...yeah---I agree.

Thanks for sharing this with us MaryO.
