The Pituitary Foundation is a national support and information organisation for pituitary patients, their families, friends and carers. We are the UK's leading charity providing support to people affected by disorders of the pituitary gland such as acromegaly, Cushing's, prolactinoma, diabetes insipidus and hypopituitarism.
It is estimated that there are approximately 70,000 people with a pituitary condition in the United Kingdom. To meet the need for information and support The Pituitary Foundation was set up in 1994 and was subsequently registered as a charity in September 1996.
The Pituitary Foundation operates throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. We are a membership organisation and have in the region of 2,300 subscribed members and we support thousands of people affected by pituitary conditions each year. We are a relatively small charity, with ten members of staff and supporting our work we have a team of 140 volunteers across the country.
