Recently published studies suggest that hormone imbalances within the body after an MTBI can be linked with the traumatic disruption of function of the hypothalamus gland.
This gland, the master gland for hormone functions, is located in about the center of the skull, deep inside the brain.
Traumatic jostling of the brain with injury holds a high degree of possibility that the hypothalamus gland has been...
jarred or jiggled in such a way as to influence its full function.
Endocrine function may be disturbed, and delivery of various hormones (as important as insulin-like growth factor, testosterone/estrogen, thyroid and cortisol) may be reduced or compromised within the body.
