Treating Traumatic Brain Injury With Hormone Therapy


Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion

Results of recent and ongoing studies have made it clear that brain injuries like traumatic brain injury (TBI) pose substantial risk to pituitary function, multiple hormones and overall health and wellness. Hypopituitarism may benefit with appropriate hormonal replacement receiving replacement therapy such as antidiuretic hormone, glucocorticoid, and thyroid hormones when needed.

Testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and recombinant human growth hormone replacement therapy should also be introduced. Signs and symptoms of post-TBI hypopituitarism are often masked by what has been assumed to be merely the post-traumatic syndrome. It is possible to improve the quality of life and enhance the posttraumatic brain injury period with hormone replacement therapy.

Clinical evidence has demonstrated that TBI may frequently cause hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction, probably contributing to a delayed or hampered recovery from TBI. Changes in pituitary hormone secretion may be observed during the acute phase post-TBI. Diminished pituitary hormone secretion, caused by damage to the pituitary and/or hypothalamus, may occur at any time after TBI.

The most common alterations appear to be gonadotropin and somatotropin deficiency, followed by corticotropin and thyrotropin deficiency.

In order to improve outcome and quality of life in individuals who have suffered a TBI an adequate replacement therapy program is of paramount importance.
