Monday 09th October, 2023
6pm - 7pm
We’ll be joined by Dr Niki Karavitaki, Professor of Endocrinology and Honorary Consultant Endocrinologist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. She’ll be giving a general talk on prolactinoma, and some of the medication that can be taken to manage it.
Regardless of sex, prolactin is a hormone that is present in every body and plays a significant role in producing milk. A prolactinoma is a prolactin-producing tumour on the pituitary gland. This is the most common pituitary condition, and can have life changing impacts on fertility and wellbeing.
Throughout October, we will be increasing awareness about the impact of prolactin and prolactinoma, sharing up-to-date information and connect people living with high prolactin levels with experts and one another.
This event is free and open to all, however we appreciate donations to support our campaign of raising awareness of pituitary conditions.
