Aug 15, 2012 · I was producing elevated prolactin for over 20 years. I found the in Just Want to Talk

I was producing elevated prolactin for over 20 years. I found the drugs to counteract that – too hard to take. So I chose surgery. Yes – they go through your nose to remove the tumour. Check out the infor. on the surgery on the Mayo website – and also check out the Pitiuatory Network Association website for additional infor. on pit. disease. Work with your endo. I suspect the first choice of action would be trying drugs to reduce your prolactin and possibly shrink the tumour. The second option is surgery. Your endo will be able to help you with your disease. Good luck.

You can try a special type of light which is specific for SAD. Sitting under this for a few minutes each day may help. Also increasing your vitamin D is another option – check with your Dr. on both of these items. I’m not a health professional 🙂 And no this is not in your head. Many many people get the “winter blues” due to the lack of sun and light during the winter months. Take care.

Hi Julie. I recently had a prolactinoma removed. Prior to that I had very little hormone production for a very long time – which would be similar to menopause in some ways. I have found Dr. Christine Northrup on Oprah’s website an excellent resource. An excellent book (she also has a website you can check out) – The Hormone Diet by Dr. Natasha Turner. It is chalk full of excellent infor. on hormones, exercising, diet, etc.
