Connection Between Hyperprolactinemia And Chronic Renal Failure

2013-06-05 14:40

What is the connection between hyperprolactinemia and chronic renal failure? Here we will give explanation about this topic.

What is hyperprolactinemia?

Hyperprolactinemia is a condition of elevated serum prolactin which is a hormone secreted by pituitary. The upper normal value for serum prolactin in most laboratories is about 20ng/Ml(20mcg/L) and hyperprolactinemia is diagnosed when serum prolactin level is higher than the upper normal value.

Symptoms of hyperprolactinemia

For chronic kidney failure patients with hyperprolactinemia, aside from discomforts caused by kidney problem, they also suffer from a series of clinical manifestations caused by hyperprolactinemia like amenorrhea, galactorrhea, menstrual disorders, decreased libido, osteoporosis, impotence in males, rheumatoid arthritis, reiters syndrome, absence of menstrual periods, menstrual abnormalities, infertility and erectile dysfunction and so on.

What is the connection between hyperprolactinemia and chronic renal failure?

Chronic kidney failure patients are more likely to suffer from high level of serum prolactin and they run a certain risk for hyperprolactinemia. But clinical studies found serum prolactin concentration can return to normal after renal transplant.

Treatment for hyperprolactinemia

Many conditions can cause hyperprolactinemia, so finding out the root cause of it before the treatment is necessary. In clinic, different treatment methods like surgery, radiotherapy and medications can be applied to deal with hyperprolactinemia.

Since chronic renal failure can be a cause of high level of serum prolactin, for patients with both chronic renal failure and hyperprolactinemia, it is essential for them to found out whether there is connection between these two illness. If test reports reveal occurrence of hyperprolactinemia is due to decreased kidney function, treatment for hyperprolactinemia should include protection of residual kidney condition. As only when the root cause of hyperprolactinemia is removed, can this disease be treated well. (We offer online service.
