Prolactin Test Cost

Prolactin level is increased in amenorrhea, galactorrhea, pituitary lesions, paraneoplastic syndrome, stress, pregnancy, lactation, chronic renal failure, medication of neuroleptics antipsychotic drugs, and decreased in hypopituitarism, medication of Dopamine agonists, ergot derivatives. Prolactin levels may be checked as part of a fertility hormone workup, as elevated prolactin secretion can suppress the secretion of FSH and GnRH, leading to hypogonadism, and sometimes causing erectile dysfunction in men. Prolactin levels may be of some use in distinguishing epileptic seizures from psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. The serum prolactin level usually rises following an epileptic seizure.

Alternately known as lactogenic hormone or PRL, prolactin is secreted by the pituitary glands in mothers right after childbirth. This substance is essential for the reproductive health of both males and females. The sexual satisfaction in both males and females is tested by analyzing your prolactin levels. Variations in the quantity of these hormones can be responsible for health problems.

Prolactinoma is a disease that causes noncancerous (benign) tumor in the pituitary glands. The pituitary glands in such diseased state produces more amount of prolactin. Prolactin test can be ordered to diagnose and monitor this disease. As prolactinomas are small, an MRI may also be ordered along with procaltin test.

When the tumor is treated using medication or therapeutic techniques, the reaction of medicines on the tumor is timely noted by testing your prolactin levels. If women complain of having irregular periods or infertility issues, prolactin test can also hep your doctor to learn the root cause of such issues.

In case of male patients, prolactin exam is used to study problems associated with erectile dysfunction and testicular dysfunction. It can also be prescribed to those suspicious of/or suffering from prolactinoma, hypothalamus, or diseases affecting the pituitary gland.
