Pituitary gland evaluation by endocrinologist

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) This seems to be due to hyperprolactinemia.

2) This is due to resence of high levels of serum prolactin.

3) Bromocriptine should have helped.

4) Please get serum prolactin levels checked. If you hvae recent report please let me know value.

5) She might need CT scan of pituitary gland after consulting endocrinologist.

Regards
