Normal prolactin: This is a good prolactin level for a follow-up assessment. Surprisingly so. Are you on any medications? have you had surgery on the pituitary? Regardless, with these labs, the appropriate course is follow-up. Re-check the labs in 6-12 months depending on symptoms. ...Read more

Raised TSH (4,27), cortisol ((253,3 ng/ml) and prolactin levels (27,8 ng/ml). What could it mean?

What time of day?: Hi. they may be normal. The TSH could be a sign of early, subclinical hypothyroidism (getting TPO and thyroglobulin antibodies and free T4 may help the assessment). Due to diurnal variation, if the blood was drawn around 8 AM, the cortisol would be normal; very abnormal if drawn late at night. The prolactin, depending on the lab's normal range may be normal or slightly elevated. ...Read more

Prolactin high?: Depending on the normal range of the lab at which testing was done, the prolactin level may be just slightly elevated. The rest of the hormone levels are normal. A high prolactin level can interfere with ovulation ; lead to infertility. Because your elevation is so slight, usually we would repeat the test to verify the result. Prolactin levels are most accurate when drawn about 9-10 am. ...Read more

Something odd here: Usually when you have high TSH it is because your thyroid hormone levels are low and yet you report your T4 levels are normal. I would go see an endocrinologist and sit down with him and review with him what's up doc. And that's not a wacky suggestion. ...Read more
