Get Your Prolactin Checked!

Posted By: Dr. Gary Bellman on April 13, 2013

Prolactin is a very important hormone both for men/women and is often overlooked. It can be produced in lactating women but also by brain tumors. If a man has low testosterone, a prolactinoma (a brain tumor) can be the cause. To diagnose that, a blood test and possibly a pituitary MRI is necessary.

Excess prolactin in men can suppress or decrease a man’s testosterone and the remedy often is decreasing the prolactin.

This is an interesting article on prolactin in women.
