So you think you may have Sheehan’s Syndrome. You’ve come to the right place. I’ve created this blog to empower women who’ve had a traumatic birth with the knowledge and tools they need to get back to good health. That’s what you were looking for, right?
First thing you should know is that Sheehan’s Syndrome is a form of Acquired Hypopituitarism. That bit of information will make your online research a lot easier. The term Sheehan’s Syndrome only tells about the onset of Hypopit, it tells very little about what is going on with your health right now. As in all cases of Hypopit, there can be any number of endocrine hormone deficiencies and, therefore, about a thousand different symptoms.
Being that doctors are taught very little about hormones, there are very few who have a good grasp on how to properly diagnose and treat endocrine disorder. The most important thing you can do is search out and find a doctor who is willing to work with you on this journey. The one goal is to balance all your hormones. Too much is just as bad as too little. Do not expect the first doctor to be “the one,” and do not expect this journey to be quick and easy. Balancing hormones is big job and can take years, but I can tell you it is well worth it.
Join support groups and ask questions. Follow blogs that talk about health and hormones. You will need to understand how hormones work and listen to your body to accomplish your goal. The bottom line is that it is possible to get back to good health. There is hope.
