Introduction  

In this following
research paper I will be discussing my topic which is based on the Pituitary
Disease known as the “Hypothalamic
disease”. This disease is particularly known as a malfunction of the brain
related to the hypothalamus, helping to control the body’s general functions. It
is rooted in the brain near the cranial cavity. This condition is important in the
endocrine system; gives the pituitary gland permission to release the remaining
of the hormones that are found in the system. Determining that the body is
balanced and functioning adequately is the primary task of the hypothalamus. I
chose to talk about this topic because I find it intriguing as to how this
disease can become destructive throughout time if not treated immediately and
correctly. The purpose of writing this research paper is to learn about the
disease we chose to write about and encourage others to learn more about
diseases that are spreading across the nation. By writing this paper I also
hope to encourage people to increase their health habits so they can live a
much longer time.

Statistics

            It
has been stated that consistently sleeping and waking up in the middle of the
night is due to the hypothalamic disease and can result leaving the patient in
a coma, this is likely to happen to only a small percent of patients. It can
leave the person feeling drowsy, and with lesions meaning leaving the body with
incorrect functions. It was first discovered in the 1900’s that reducing the
chances of getting this disease requires a person to maintain at a healthy
weight and eat a well-balanced meal, keep track of their body temperature.
Especially during pregnancy a woman should take care of herself; that means
trying to have a stress-free life during those 9 months, relaxing more, and
eating healthier so during child labor the baby is healthy. A person should
control their emotions; by doing so they can communicate with others and vent
about problems. The most important rule is keeping a healthy routine for sleep;
meaning sleeping the required 8 hours a day. Following these habits keeps the
body away from the disease.

 

 

 

Pathophysiology
(Causes)  

Some causes of the
disease include: surgery or infections or swelling. After a person has had such
infections or swelling it is best recommend that they take any painkillers and
heating or cold pads over the affected area to reduce the chances of it getting
worse. Traumatic brain injury requires the person to rest as much as possible;
resting at home is the best place to be able to lay in bed. Stress is something
that occurs in a person’s daily life, to avoid that it is best to keep a
positive mindset. By keeping a positive attitude people should surround
themselves with loved ones. Tumors, radiation, nutrition problems; eating
disorders such as (anorexia, bulimia), extreme weight loss, blood vessel
problems in the brain; for example aneurysm, pituitary apoplexy, subarachnoid
hemorrhage etc. Genetic disorders for example Prader-Willi syndrome it what causes
the person to gain uncontrollable weight, disability and affects growth of
person. Familial diabetes, Kallmann syndrome causes delay in puberty and loss
of scent.   

 

Signs
and Symptoms

Some signs and
symptoms that detect hypothalamic disease due to inefficient hormones produced
in the body are Gigantism or dwarfism these are two other pituitary diseases
that occur in the human body. For pregnant women it may lead to miscarriage or
having premature babies. It may lead to migraines, or blindness, the ability to
be physically active examples; walking, running, jumping and sexually active, dizziness,
constant weight loss or gain, bowel movements, 
Minor signs related to hypothalamic disease may be emotional problems,
high or low body temperature, dehydration, bladder problems or bladder
infections and loss of scent. Doctors recommend mothers to take supplements
such as B-12, Folate, Prenatal Multivitamin, Probiotics, Vitamin D3, Magnesium,
Coconut oil and Third Trimester Pregnancy Tea they have been resulted to
decrease chances of increasing the chances for their children to develop any hormonal
diseases. 

 

 

 

Diagnosis
   

There are numerous
types of tests that can diagnose whether the patient is suffering from
hypothalamic disease. The first is an MRI scan which is used in radiology; it detects
the inside of the human body.  The second
test is known as CAT scan; a combination of X-rays from different angles scanning
specific areas in general. The best technique for a doctor to diagnose is to
test the pituitary gland, depending on how the hormone levels are he/she will
explain the cause of the disease. An old strategy that the physicians would use
to diagnose was called TRH (Thyrotropin-releasing hormone) stimulation test,
however they never saw any negative or positive outcomes. They soon began to
discover that healthy patients respond about 30 minutes after being injected
with TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone) injection. An unhealthy patient with
hypothalamic disease responds 45-60 minutes after injection. Throughout their
entire research, researchers have found that the best way to diagnose a patient
is to operate on an evaluation process using thyroxine supplements.

 

Treatment
 

Once the doctor has
diagnosed that the patient has the disease his following procedure is to
eliminate the tumor with surgery. It may be a bit difficult to remove depending
whether or not the patient has any tissues or pituitary glands surrounding the
tumor. If such risks are wanted to be avoided the following step would be to
use a therapy known as “Radiation therapy” this helps remove the tumor without
having to dissect anything from the inside of the patient. Doctors may ask
patient to attend to a diet reducing the risk of increasing the chance of
getting hypothalamic disease again. They might even prescribe a pill known as corticosteroids this helps to restore
the hormone if it has been determined that the person will never recover from
the disease.  

 

 

 

 

 

Prognosis  

Many researchers
have told the public that this disease can be treated most of the time if
hormones are replaced using various types of methods. The first method would be
to take more minerals such as “Chromium” to help the body to be able to
function more. Some foods that contain chromium are Broccoli, Potatoes, Garlic,
Basil, Grass-fed beef, Oranges, Turkey, Green beans, Apples and Bananas. Using
two types of oils; such as terpenes and sesquiterpenes help release emotions,
keep balance, and maintain a good memory. A third option would be to take
vitex, which produces female hormones. The fourth option would be to eat olive
oil, coconut oil, avocados, grass-fed butter and wild-caught salmon. These help
to support a healthy level of cholesterol. The fifth method is to increase
stress-free activities such as sleeping more. And the last method is to
exercise on a regular basis, this helps to metabolize food better.  

 

Prevention

The hypothalamic
disease can be prevented by a patient consulting first with a doctor if they feel
they have any problems with hormonal deficiency meaning with growth hormones.
It is best to not assume that you can treat yourself if not tested by a
physician. Another great strategy is to maintain a healthy diet; such as
fruits, vegetables, fiber, proteins, water. The healthier you eat the less
chance you have of increasing that risk. Staying active is another great
strategy; for example taking a nice walk outdoors under the sun. Vitamins is
also a great way to maintain a healthy body, many times people don’t have the
time to eat a healthy lunch containing vitamins and minerals. Taking a vitamin
every morning is a great way to reduce chances of getting a hormonal disease or
any disease in general.

 

 

 

 

 

 Complications

With hypothalamic
disease there are thought to be various complications; for instance if a
patient has a brain tumor that will
eventually lead them to have blindness, issues controlling the salt and sugar
intake. Hypothyroidism causes high
cholesterol and problems related to the heart. Adrenal insuffiency after having a surgery or an infection the
person won’t be able to cope with stress. Sex
gland deficiency leads to problems with heart disease, osteoporosis meaning
having delicate bones, mothers begin to have issues with their breast leading
to not being able to breastfeed their babies. Growth hormone deficiency leads to dwarfism; people tend to reach
an abnormal height, lose strength. These are complications that may or may not
occur while the person is suffering from hypothalamic disease.

 

Conclusion
 

In this following
research paper I chose to talk about The
Hypothalamic Disease a problem with the brain called the hypothalamus that
helps control many body functions. I found this topic to be very interesting. I
found information that I never knew even existed. It has taught me that if the
body is not treated correctly the body will eventually start to become
unhealthy and suffer the consequences that you caused upon yourself. Researchers
have stated that that there are ways for treating the disease but they feel it
is unlikely to find a cure to the disease itself. They also stated that since
there is no way to control the genes of a person there are healthy tips to
follow to maintain healthy, however they are not giving up on finding a cure to
eliminate the disease forever.
