Hyperprolactinemia is a type of disorder where there is an abnormally high level or quantity of prolactin in the blood. Usually 500 mIU/L is the standard but in this disorder, the levels produced go much higher. For women it means reduced menstrual or irregular menstrual cycle followed with hypoestrogenism and anovulatory infertility.
HOW IS HYPERPROLACTINEMIA DIAGNOSED?
While one of the most common causes of Hyperprolactinemia is a growth or tumor on the pituitary gland called a prolactinoma, this condition is more common in women than in men and rarely occurs in children. A Gynaecologist/Homeopathy/Ayurvedic Doctor conducts a blood test to diagnose Hyperprolactinemia and check the excess prolactin.
HOW IS HYPERPROLACTINEMIA TREATED?
Treatment for hyperprolactinemia depends on the cause and the severity of the disorder. In some patients, prolactin levels spontaneously revert to normal. Some pituitary tumors may be small enough that treatment is not required, although regular follow-up evaluations are necessary. Medication is recommended in specific cases. Therapy may even shrink the tumor. Levels of prolactin usually fall within days of beginning therapy.
