Your Journey Booklet

Please note that if you order a hard copy of this booklet you will receive a booklet from our older stock. The information inside will be similar to our new stock. This is to save unnecessary waste as we phase out the previous edition.

This booklet provides information about the psychological and social issues associated with the long-term impact of a pituitary condition and its management (both medical and psychological) as well as provide some practical advice.

You may find that not all of it applies to you. We hope it helps you to understand your condition better, gives you ideas on how to manage emotional issues and offers you a basis for discussion with your partner, GP and Endocrinologist.
