I recently did a hormone panel of blood work. I am 33 years old(never taken gh) and my gh is in the ref range I guess as I got 0.2 ug/L and the ref range is 0.1 - 4.0 ug/L.
I am on the shorter side(5' 7" and the short for my family). Both my brother and father are just under 6' and hence I decided to get it checked with the rest of my hormone blood work.
I had meningitis as a newborn if that is of any help in terms of if it could somehow damage my pituitary gland.
Also, of concern was that my prolactin levels were high-Prolactin came back at 21.2 ug/L when the ref is 2.6 - 13.1 ug/L.
My question is that I need to get advice so I can better educate and understand what is going on and what I should be saying to my doc.
My doc is going to do a retest on the prolactin but my doc did not say anything about the gh as I guess it was in range.
Are low gh levels related to my high prolactin levels?
