Sheehan’s Syndrome Insight From The Mayo Clinic and NORD

Insight On Sheehan’s Syndrome

Over the past decade, I have read thousands of articles about What Causes Sheehan’s Syndrome, What Are The Symptoms Of Sheehan’s Syndrome, and The Treatment For Sheehan’s Syndrome.

Mayo Clinic 

The Mayo Clinic website provides a terrific overview about Sheehan’s Syndrome.

The Mayo Clinic recognizes that Sheehan’s Syndrome may not develop right after childbirth, and the disease may be difficult to diagnose.

You can click on this Mayo Clinic Link to read the Sheehan’s Syndrome overview.


I have found The National Organization For Rare Disorders (NORD) has a website filled with helpful information.

The NORD gratefully acknowledges Mark E. Molitch, MD, Professor of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Molecular Medicine, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, for his help to prepare the Sheehan’s Syndrome report.

The Sheehan’s Syndrome report is written an easy to understand the format. 

The NORD’s, Sheehan’s Syndrome report includes:

  • General Discussion about Sheehan’s Syndrome
  • The Synonyms of Sheehan syndrome
  • Signs and Symptoms of Sheehan’s Syndrome
  • The Causes of Sheehan’s Syndrome
  • The Treatment Plan for Sheehan’s

I found it interesting that the NORD Website also mentions Antiphospholipid Syndrome as a related disorder to Sheehan’s Syndrome.

The NORD Website Notes

Related Disorders;

Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APLS) is a rare autoimmune disorder characterized by recurring blood clots that usually appear before 45 years of age.

APLA may also be associated with repeated spontaneous abortions for no apparent reason in young women.

There may be a family history of blood clotting disorders in some cases. APS may occur in individuals with lupus or related autoimmune diseases or as a primary syndrome in otherwise healthy individuals.

I am sure my blood clots are related to my Sheehan’s Syndrome.

I never had a clotting issue until I was stricken with Sheehan’s Syndrome.
