Article Type: REVIEW ARTICLE | First Published: December 04, 2019

Prolactin is a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary lactotrophs and is controlled by the influence of hypothalamic dopamine. PRL stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of mammary cells for lactation. There are many causes for hyperprolactinemia, including analytical, physiological, pharmacological, pathological and idiopathic causes. Macroprolactin is a significant analytical cause of hyperprolactinemia, and the most common cause of pathological hyperprolactinemia is prolactin se...

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is the main biomarker and initial test for thyroid dysfunction. However, no formal reference interval (RI) data for TSH is available in Malaysia and South East Asia. All TSH reference inter...
