Exercise with a disturbed hormone balance

It is important for everyone to exercise regularly, also for children who have (had) a brain tumor. But for children with a brain tumor near the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, movement can sometimes be difficult. This is because their hormone balance is disturbed.

As a result, children may have a slower metabolism, gain weight, sleep less well, have poorer vision and have gloomy moods. As a result, they have less energy, are often tired and exercise less.

Nevertheless, exercise is important. That way you can prevent the complaints from getting worse and you can even make sure that the fatigue decreases.
