Prolactin

Prolactin levels are used, along with other tests, to help:

  • 1. Determine the cause of galactorrhea
  • 2. Determine the cause of headaches and visual disturbances
  • 3. Diagnose infertility and erectile dysfunction in males
  • 4. Diagnose infertility in females
  • 5. Diagnose prolactinomas
  • 6. Evaluate anterior pituitary function (along with other hormones)
  • 7. Monitor treatment of prolactinomas and detect recurrences



Why Do I Need It?:
To determine whether your prolactin levels are higher (or occasionally, lower) than normal.
When you have symptoms of elevated prolactin, such as galactorrhea and/or visual disturbances and headaches; as part of a workup for female and male infertility; for follow-up of low testosterone in men.
