June 4, 2019
  1. Why is there so much variety of opinion, theory and therapy?
  2. How to consider thyroid function within the context of the whole patient.
  3. The difference between acute therapies (often for reactive issues) versus longer term or primary thyroid issues.
  4. Do people need to “be on thyroid for life” once you start?
  5. Technical considerations:
    1. How should the system work?
    2. Why is T3 crucial to both extra and intra cellular factors?
    3. What happens in a true primary hypothyroid?
    4. How does autoimmunity complicate?
    5. What is thyroid resistance?
  6. Testing and Monitoring:
    1. Standard screening vs “Sick Patient” screening
    2. Proper prep for labs / timing / meds etc.
    3. How to assess true TSH suppression.
    4. LDH, AlkPhos, SHBG… and Thyroid
    5. Bone turnover, NTx etc.
