Hyperprolactinemia: Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

About

Hyperprolactinemia refers to the condition wherein the level of prolactin in the blood is very high.

Excess levels of prolactin can be identified in almost 10% of the population.

It can affect both men and women.

  • Not self-treatable
  • Not self-diagnosable
  • Lab tests are required

Causes of hyperprolactinemia
Major and common causes:

  • Forming of a benign tumor on the pituitary gland
  • Diseases affecting the brain
  • Other causes include:
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cirrhosis of liver
  • Kidney failure
  • Antidepressants and antipsychotics
  • Antihypertensives and antinauseals

Symptoms

For women, when occurring outside of pregnancy, symptoms may include:

  • Infertility
  • Abnormal lactation and breast pain
  • Irregular and infrequent periods
  • Disappearance of ovulation periods
  • Loss of libido and pain during sexual intercourse due to vaginal dryness
  • For men, symptoms may include:
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Development of breast tissue and lactation
  • Infertility
