Yes, I know my supply is extremely low. It is not masked at all. Without the domperidone I would be down to practically nothing. I do not believe that I have IGT; my breasts are normal. Surprisingly, my sister (who just had a baby) also had low milk supply! (But, I am adopted, so...)
I've only seen an increase with domperidone, but nothing to fully feed my DD. I decreased dosage to check... and it went down!!!! And, I was still taking my herbs (More Milk Plus & Goat's Rue). Iron levels are good (just had those checked). The LC would have mentioned a tongue tie or lip tie. She has a good suck... someone mentioned she may have a lazy suck since she's been on the #4 feeding tube w/ SNS. I went down to #2 and she did well, but sometimes got "desperate" b/c it wasn't fast enough... probably b/c I wasn't giving her very much either.
So, I think my prolactin levels were high b/c of the domperidone. I didn't have breast changes during pregnancy, but don't believe I have IGT. Oxytocin should help let-down... so maybe that's a problem.
Well... I am working on it... still haven't lost hope! (Although, some days I just want to give up.) I have read the book "Mother Food" and did just about everything... except try alfalfa, fenugreek capsules (instead of mixed herbs tincture), pure barley water, brewer's yeast...
Curious: Can the body 'make' more glandular tissue postpartum?
