What we do

The Christopher Lane Trust is dedicated to Christopher Lane who took his own life in in 2008 at the age of 31.

The Trust seeks to help anyone who believes they may have hypopituitarism and has difficulty in 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
