Lara Williams’ Upcoming Sessions
Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI) can be devastating for young women, in terms of fertility options as well as increasing their risk for long term health consequences, such as osteoporosis and heart disease. Appropriate labs and clinical questions through case studies will be explored, and possible ways to “catch” POI for young women before it is symptomatic will be emphasized. Overall, we will discuss how to treat these patients differently than typical menopausal patients and dive deep into possible prevention strategies from the perspectives of both a functional medicine OB/Gyn and a Naturopathic physician.
