I just got back from the endocrinologist. Unfortunately I was not able to take the test with me because of rules in my home country, but I had the following tested:
- Total Test
She said that everything was in range, except for Prolactin, which she said was about 4 points above the average range. She is sending me for an MRI just to rule out anything serious going on in my brain. She did say that it is very unlikely that it is something like a tumor because my prolactin would be elevated exponentially. She has given me another test for Prolactin to have done after the MRI and before I see her again. Has anyone seen this before? Only slight elevation of Prolactin, but everything else completely normal? I am worried that I am going to be one of those who look completely normal hormonally. My sides are mostly sexual and I have been off the medication for 14 months after taking it for 4 years. The good thing is that this endo seems sympathetic to my concerns and is willing to try bromocriptine or cabergoline if the elevated prolactin persists. She said if everything comes back negative she is willing to refer me to Dr. Keith Jarvi, a urologist who is recommended on propecia help.
