Assessing Thyroid Dysfunction: A Clinical Perspective
June 20th, 2017 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. (CDT)
It’s estimated that thyroid-related disorders affect nearly 200 million Americans. Many of these patients go undiagnosed, or worse yet, misdiagnosed. For these patients, understanding the causal factors contributing to dysfunction is critical, and clinicians must prioritize assessment and treatment strategies for optimal outcomes.
Join Dr. Christopher Mote, ARK Program Clinical Expert, as he explores clinical case studies and protocols in evaluating:
- HPT axis suppression secondary to the upregulation of the HPA axis
- Autoimmune suppression of thyroid function (Hashimoto’s)
- Nutritional depletion leading to slowed thyroid output
