Raised Prolactin levels in blood
Hi,
Could anyone tell me about Raised Prolactin Levels please,
I had raised prolactin levels in the blood & my GP repeated the test with which i received
the results today, the results are as follows -
Post-fract Prolactin = 242 mU/I (83-383)
PROLACTIN = 1203 mU/I (105-548) - My GP said these results were nothing to worry about -
I am having an MRI Scan tomorrow for headaches/neck pain,
Will anything show up on the pituitary gland with these prolactin results?
If anyone can enlighten me on this it would be a great help!

Thanks in advance..

Hi there.

Elevated prolactin levels in a non-pregnant woman should always entail further testing and investigation.  Prolactin is secreted by the pituitary gland and the MRI should tell us if there is really something wrong with that part of your brain.  Other symptoms of increased prolactin levels would include galactorrhea (breast nipple discharge), and difficulty in getting pregnant.  Problems with the pituitary may give a person headaches but do not consistently do so.  

I hope your MRI can give us the definitive answer we need.  Regards and God bless.
