What should I know about caring for someone with prolactinoma?

When caring for someone with prolactinoma, support them throughout any treatment. Prolactinoma is often treated with medications, which may have to be taken for a long time. Help your loved one decide on and stick with a treatment, because it may be a daily procedure. It's also important to help your loved one maintain good overall health by providing a nutritious diet and encouraging exercise. If your loved one wants to talk about the effects of prolactinoma - especially if it affects their fertility - be open to it, respect their feelings, and support them emotionally however you can.
