Endocrine Typing: Connecting the Dots Between Toxin Load, Weight Loss Resistance, and Hormonal Dysfunction

The “Endocrine Typing: Connecting the Dots Between Toxin Load, Weight Loss Resistance, and Hormonal Dysfunction” conference is a premier event designed for health professionals, focusing on the intersection of endocrine function, obesity, type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders and their connection to diet, lifestyle and environmental factors.

This conference boasts a stellar lineup of speakers, each a leader in their respective field associated with the theme of the conference.

These presentations will provide the latest in basic science information related to the impact of toxins on endocrine health coupled with innovative clinical approaches to the management of complex health problems associated with endocrine and cardiometabolic dysfunctions. The strength of this conference is the development of understanding of the interconnection between the exposome, the endocrine system and clinical outcomes such as fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, insulin resistance, obesity, and chronic inflammation.

The conference is structured to maximize learning and engagement. The conference includes in-depth presentations, followed by Q&A segments, allowing attendees to delve deeper into the topics. In addition to the keynote presentations, the conference includes presentations from key clinical opinion leaders that focus on patient management and case histories fostering an environment of active participation in providing take-away information among the conference attendees.

Networking opportunities are interspersed throughout the event, offering the attendees time to connect with peers, share experiences, and form collaborative relationships. The conference also features an exhibition area where attendees can explore the latest innovations in both assessment and treatment options related to the delivery of personalized lifestyle medicine intervention programs.

This conference is designed to empower health professionals with knowledge and tools to integrate personalized lifestyle medicine into their practice, ultimately improving patient outcomes in the realm of endocrinology, environmental toxicity, and metabolic disorders and obesity management.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the connection between the exposome and endocrine system function.
  2. Understand the cellular dysfunctions that connect obesity to endocrine disturbance.
  3. Provide clinical tools for managing endocrine-related issues that derive from exposure to toxins.
