Milk hormone treatment

Milk hormone treatment

High milk hormone

Hyperprolactinemia is defined as a health condition in which there is an increase in the secretion of prolactin hormone, which is the hormone responsible for producing milk in the breast, and this increase may occur due to several reasons, including pregnancy. Pregnancy: or because there is a tumor that causes its secretion to increase (Prolactinoma), or it may occur as a result of a large tumor in the pituitary gland that causes pressure on the rest of the gland. It is worth noting that some medications may cause an increase in the prolactin hormone, such as psychiatric drugs, etc. 

Symptoms of high milk hormone

Symptoms may vary and vary from person to person, but a higher milk hormone in general may cause women to have a decrease in sexual desire, secretion of milk from the breast, infertility, and changes in the menstrual cycle. As for men, the increase in the milk hormone may cause a gradual and continuous loss of sexual desire, in addition to impotency, a decrease in the number of sperm, and an enlarged breast. 

Treating the high hormone in milk is natural remedies for raising the hormone in milk

The following methods can be used to treat milk hormone elevation: 
  • Eating and maintaining plants that support the endocrine system: These plants are classified as substances that help the endocrine system to adapt and adapt to different conditions, and these materials include the Ashwagandha plant or what is known as the hypnotic gameplay (English: Withania Somnifera) Schisandra Chinensis, Shepherd's Herb (Polygonum Multiflorum), Glycyrrhiza, American Ginseng, Panax Quinquefolius, Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus Senticosus), Siberian Grass : Centella Asiatica), as well as maca Lepidium Meyenii, which nourishes the endocrine system and promotes the work of the thyroid gland in cases of its decline, and maintains the level of energy, sexual desire, and hormones in men and women, in addition to Mary's herb or the so-called chastity tree (English: Vitex Agnus-Castus) that have A clear impact on the level of prolactin, which reduces the levels of prolactin when it is high, stimulates hormone balance and helps in the regularity of the menstrual cycle, as it maintains the natural level of progesterone in the body and thus promotes the occurrence of ovulation regularly.
  • Maintaining thyroid safety: Thyroid Gland by eating foods that contain iodine, and nutritional supplements that contain vitamins B, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E, which contain mineral Zinc, copper, and selenium, as well as ingestion of the golden root plant (Rhodiola Rosea) and others. Maintaining thyroid safety is a key pillar in treating the rise in the milk hormone, because a decrease in thyroid hormone leads to an increase in the percentage of thyroid stimulating hormone (Thyroid-Releasing Hormone), which may lead to an increase in prolactin secretion. 

  • Control of stress and nervous pressure: This is because stress increases the percentage of stress hormones in the body, such as the hormone cortisol (in English: Cortisol), which in turn inhibits the hormone that stimulates the reproductive glands (in English: Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone) responsible for the secretion of a group of hormones, including prolactin hormone, and this It causes several effects such as: discouraging the process of ovulation, weak sexual activity, reducing the number of sperm, and affecting the balance of hormones in the body, among others.

Pharmacological and surgical treatments for the high hormone in milk

Taking and choosing a treatment procedure depends on the reason leading to the increase in the milk hormone. It is worth noting that there are some cases in which the milk hormone rises without any symptoms, or with a few minor symptoms, then the patient may not need any kind of treatment. Among the options available to treat the high hormone milk if needed: 
  • Use of some drugs that reduce the production of the prolactin hormone: Bromocriptine and Cabergoline are used to treat high levels of the milk hormone caused by the presence of a tumor, and for unknown reasons as well.
  • Surgical intervention: where this option is used for cases of elevated milk hormone resulting from the presence of a tumor, as it is used when the tumor does not respond to drug treatments, and is also used in the event that vision and the ability to see the presence of the tumor are affected.
  • Radiation therapy: It is used in cases of a tumor when it does not respond to drug and surgical treatment, where radiation therapy aims to reduce the size of the tumor.

Diagnosed with high hormone milk

Milk hormone elevation can be diagnosed by the following methods:
  • Blood tests: where the blood test is done to ensure that there is an increase in the prolactin hormone, and in the event of its rise, thyroid hormones are examined to find out the reason, where the hypothyroidism drop is excluded as a cause of the rise of the hormone in the milk in the event The percentage of thyroid hormones was within normal limits. It is also important to ask about other health conditions and treatments taken by the patient, and to exclude the presence of pregnancy as a cause of the prolactin hormone.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging: used in cases where there is a suspected tumor that causes increased prolactin secretion. Imaging using magnetic resonance imaging (magnetic resonance imaging) imaging the brain and in most cases imaging the pituitary gland as well, where this technique is able to detect the presence of a tumor in the pituitary gland and clarify its size.
