Pituitary gland and hypoglycemia

Can problems with the pituitary gland cause hypoglycemia?

@bumble81, I moved this discussion to the Diabetes and Endocrine System group as I believe you'll get more responses there.

As you likely know, hypoglycemia occurs when your blood sugar (glucose) level falls too low. There are several reasons why this can happen; the most common is a side effect of drugs used to treat diabetes. However, certain adrenal gland and pituitary tumor disorders can result in a deficiency of key hormones that regulate glucose production and lead to hypoglycemia.

Do you have a pituitary tumor disorder?
