I'm a 48 year old female & was diagnosed with hyperprolac

Customer Question

Hi, I'm a 48 year old female & was diagnosed with hyperprolactanaemia when I was 19. I am 6'1" tall & my husband is 6'4". We have a 12 year old son & a 10 year old son. My 12 year old is 5'10" & I am concerned about his height & worried that my hormone imbalance whilst pregnant with him may cause him to grow extremely tall. Are there growth suppressant treatments available if he continues to grow at his current rate? My GP sees no reason for concern.

This is Dr. David
both you and your husband are tall.
it could very well be normal for your son to be at his height at his age.
I bet if he gets his blood prolactin and growth hormone levels checked, they will be normal for him.
there are no growth suppressant medications if his growth hormone and prolactin and pituitary hormone levels are normal.
if you continue to worry, you can get him to see a private endocrinologist in the UK
but I bet his blood tests and hormone tests will be normal
