Welcome ad thank you for your question.

The presence of breast milk indicates a high level of the hormone prolactin in the blood. Prolactin usually rises after childbirth when a woman is breastfeeding but may occasionally rise even when not breastfeeding.

Prolactin may rise due to the presence of a brain tumor known as prolactinoma or may rise without any specific cause.

Loss of hair and night sweats can indicate a thyroid hormonne problem.

It is very likely that she does have a hormonal imbalance. Your daughter needs to consult her doctor for a thorough hormonal assessment with blood tests.

I hope this helps.
