Pituitary Hormones: Pituitary hormones are chemical substances made and/or stored by the three lobes of the pituitary gland. Pituitary hormones are secreted into the body through blood vessels and control a wide variety of functions, such as metabolism and sexual reproduction. They also stimulate other endocrine glands, such as the thyroid gland and the adrenal cortex, to produce other hormones. The pituitary hormones include antidiuretic hormone, oxytocin, growth hormone, luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, melanocyte-stimulating hormone, adrenocorticotropic hormone, prolactin, and thyroid-stimulating hormone. These hormones control a wide variety of bodily functions, such as metabolism, and also stimulate other endocrine glands, such as the thyroid gland, to produce other hormones. Conditions that can afflict the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland include brain surgery, meningitis, pituitary apoplexy, adenoma, empty sella syndrome, hypopituitarism, and head trauma.
