Anyone else with high prolactin levels?
« on: November 28, 2019, 11:25:35 AM »

My prolactin is out of range. Anybody else with this? I read that it is caused by pituitary tumors? Could it be caused by something else? Does it matter? My GP seemed to sort of dismiss it. It was normal last time I had labs.

May I suggest you get a second opinion, and quickly, also below may point you in helping;

Why do I need to get the opinion quickly?

Not sure about the 'quickly' part, but any hormone out of range should be confirmed by multiple tests before considering any treatment.

I’d ask for a referral to an endocrinologist.
