Getting a Better Grip on Prolactin

Time-frame: 70-120
CERP: yes

Prolactin is considered to be a key hormone for lactation, yet our knoweldge has been surprisingly sparse. It is necessary for pubertal and pregnancy mammary development as well as milk synthesis. While prolactin level does not correlate directly to milk production, lactation fails without it. This talk will take a closer look at current research and what we do and do not yet understand about prolactin. We will then examine specific cases and discuss the process of elimination, as well as possible strategies for affected mothers.
