    Got my results back and prolactin is very high what should I do?


    I got my results from the doc and this was taken from my last week of the 200mg of test cypionate since then I lowered it to 100 mg. The doc said he was concerned about my prolactin levels which was 21.4H Ng/ml reference range of 4.1-15.2. What the heck is going on here? My total testosterone was 1162ng/dl and free test 310.9pg reference range 35.0-155.0. My estradiol was at 14 pg/ml. He said he is going to prescribe me some medicine that will bring the prolactin down. What do you guys think should I freak out about this or am I missing something?

    That number is not insanely high, but I would keep an eye on it. My last labs show a range of 2.5 - 22.5 ng/mL (I was at 7.9), so you would make it into the high end of that range. I'm not certain, but I thought TRT somewhat lowered prolactin levels...anyone here know the answer? You have already lowered your dose from 200mg to 100mg, and that test was taken at the 200mg level...maybe wait a month and retest to see where it is at.

    Did you fast for your test? My labs have a note indicating that NOT fasting will give a higher result.

    E2 what testing method was used?
    Check thyroid function and dopamine for issues with prolactin..

    Methodology is not known. I would run privatelabsmd female hormone profile to use standardized method for e2 testing. I have seen others which have been skewed in recent Drs patients. It is recommended to get most accurate testing available especially in relationship to e2. I had to convert many Drs from the 3-70 e2 from lab corp to the 7-42 range to maintain proper ranges.
