I just read above that you have already had an MRI showing no macroadenoma (big tumor), but as beast said above, it is entirely possible you have a microadenoma (small tumor), which is much easier to deal with.My parents created my body, in which I create my mind.

i go to see the endocrinologist in a week or so. i will ask about a smaller mass that may not have been seen. any supps that i could have taken that could play w prolactin?

Of the top of my head D-Aspartic Acid and Agmatine can both raise prolactin. I'm sure there are many more. Do you have a list of what you have been on?My parents created my body, in which I create my mind. I will honor them, by developing both to their utmost potential.

currently: womens multivit, half a dexaprine a day (new version) vitamin C and D, tyrosine, calcium, magnesium, glucosamine, green tea extract, trib test, zma, l carnatine and kelp
in the past: l-dopa, abliderate advanced, lean xtreme

Depending on how long and dosing, l dopa could have affected pituitary hormones.

I would never claim that these are proof of what's happening with you, but it lends some weight to the possibility.

thanks i will read more about that. i would be surprised if the lasting effects are from years ago though. although i did not see the bloodwork, the dr didnt indicate that the prolactin levels improved at all w the cease of l-dopa supplementation over the month.

Just recently diagnosed with hypo myself. I've had several high TSH readings 5.5, 4.9 and finally 7.5. After the last reading, my doc put me on 50mcg of levothyroxin and, so far, I'm feeling pretty good. Since starting the main thing I've noticed is the increased energy. Normally I was very tired in the middle of the day and had to take a nap (usually 2 hours ) to get by. Now I'm good to go for the whole day. I've never really had much trouble with weight gain but my energy has definitely been on the decline particularly the last couple of years. So far, no weight loss, actually I've gained a couple of pounds as my appetite is through the roof right now. Might be a good time for another bulk
Got a couple of questions. What supplements would be contraindicated with this condition? Iodine, which I saw discussed earlier, makes my condition worse so that's definitely something I have to steer clear off. Any others? I'm currently supplementing with Beta Alanine, Vit D3, fish oil, green tea, gingko (once or twice a week) and cit malate (pre workout only). Also use DAA and Erase. These ok?
Does this condition affect your joints? I'm always kinda achy (knees, back, elbows and now right shoulder). Interestingly, Cissus made my joints hurt worse and, of course, Erase made me feel like I was 90.
I was thinking of adding a preworkout (Jacked Micro, Condense, C4, White Flood) and a fat burning aid (TTA) . Any recommendations?
Good thread and thanks in advance for responses.

went to dr. thyroid function back down to 3.4 but prolactin still around 27-28. she old me estrogrn is low but is attributing it to my training. i think im going to seek out a second opinion. there is nothing on my staple supps list to continue elevated prolactin

The low estrogen. I'm going to try to schedule to see a different doctor. The woman I saw knew nothing about the lifestyle I lead and kept asking me why I train so much. Not really sure why it mattered to her... she just seemed more focused on that. She didn't know much about supplements for the lifestyle either. I trust her but a friend referred me to someone who is more familiar with these types of things.

Good luck with the new doc.
Are you very lean?
To me that may make sense as to why your estrogen is low. I've read that some female athletes that compete at high levels like the Olympics can reach a point of fitness where they start to lose their breast and accompanying fat, leading to somewhat skewed estrogen etc.
