Are there alternative treatments for prolactinoma?

There really aren't any alternative treatments that will help cure prolactinoma. Usually, prolactinoma can only be treated with medications or surgery. In some cases, doctors may not recommend any treatment at all. However, it may be helpful for people with prolactinoma to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a nutritious diet filled with calcium and vitamin D, as well as exercise and rest. This is important because prolactinoma can lead to osteoporosis.
