For the last episode of Season 1, Nicola and Florence welcome Dr Alyse Goldberg, whose endocrinology practice focuses on managing hormonal conditions in reproductive age women, many of who are attempting to conceive. Together, they discussed
- How common is HA compared to PCOS, and why misdiagnoses happen
- Dr Goldberg's recommendations for patients she diagnoses with HA
- How often amenorrhea is in fact a symptom of Premature Ovarian Insuffiency (POI) and not HA and whether having FSH close to 20 is a sign of POI
- Whether there is a link between HA and elevated liver enzymes, or HA with Thyroid conditions like Hashimoto's disease
- Whether "hormone balancing" diets actually work
We also mention the story of young elite runnner Mary Cain in this episode. Find more about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBwtCf2X5jw
