Understanding Hormone Replacement From DNA and Beyond:

How Hormone Interactions Impact the Clinical Picture

This three part series presents a fresh look at how hormones exert their influence on target  tissues and what multi-layered interactions may be occurring to complicate our understanding  of clinical presentations. Family physicians who prescribe hormone replacement will be helped by this comprehensive tutorial, which contains information glossed-over or never  
taught in medical schools. Dr Gillson explains the hormone interactions underlying clinical  presentations including: apparent estrogen dominance and deficiency, apparent progesterone excess and deficiency, apparent low androgens, reduced tissue activity of thyroid hormone T3, dysregulated patterns of cortisol as measured in saliva, low DHEA, osteoporosis and opioid use.
