The Christopher Lane Trust is dedicated to Christopher Lane who took his own life in 2008 at the age of 31.
The Trust seeks to help anyone who believes they may have hypopituitarism and have difficulty getting the right tests.
What is hypopituitarism?
Hypopituitarism is damage to the pituitary gland, often caused by a head injury, no matter how mild. Symptoms include fatigue, loss of sex drive, infertility, weight issues and depression. For a fuller list click here.
How do we help?
We provide information to help you get the appropriate tests and diagnosis
We help you to avoid being misdiagnosed with ME or other causes of clinical depression
We provide financial help, if funds permit, to pay for private consultations for those living on benefits which have been unable to get the proper tests through the NHS
The Trust is also actively involved in:
Improving the dissemination of information about hypopituitarism to the public, GPs and other medical practitioners
Cooperating with NICE to update the head injury guideline to include the risk of hypopituitarism.
