MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.
This week on MD for Moms, I interview endocrinologist Dr. Joanna Miragaya about hormone disorders that impact women. Endocrine disorders are not always quickly identified and can make life harder than necessary (think low energy, feeling blah, weight gain dry skin among other symptoms in the case of hypothyroidism, for example). When left undiagnosed and untreated, certain endocrine disorders not only make you feel crummy, but also can negatively impact fertility and may be dangerous during a pregnancy. We discuss the many endocrine disorders that impact women including gestational diabetes, postpartum thyroiditis, PCOS and more, and Dr. Miragaya explains not only diagnosis, but also the role of diet in some disorders and treatment options.
