Posted on Mon, 10 Jul 2017 in Thyroid Problem and Hormonal Problems
Question: Hi Doc
I have been diagnosed with high prolactin levels since a year now.
First report showed 41.50 (april 2016)
Tab Cabgolin 0.25 was advised once every 15 days.
but levels did not come down good so medicine was once a week.
but still levels showed high so medicine advised twice a week.
last report showed 32.4 (nov 2016)
Thereafter I stopped the medicine.

Also I have water retention issue.
As a result my weight loss is very slow.

Kindly advice some remedy for both .
