The Nutrition-Endocrine Connection: Out of Chaos, Into Balance

13 September 2013

The connection between neuroendocrine disorders and nutrition is often not considered by other healthcare specialists treating neuroendocrine disorders. Working with a skilled Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) should be a part of the assessment and treatment process and can contribute greatly to improving the patient's health. The RDN provides unique knowledge and skills that can integrate with other health practitioners treating patients with neuroendocrine imbalances. In this webinar we will explore the intersection of nutrition and lifestyle factors in terms of how they can improve and impact neuroendocrine balance.

Learning Objectives

To provide an understanding of the role that nutrition plays in neuroendocrine conditions.
To discuss some of the specific conditions and treatment approaches a Registered Dietitian uses in addressing select neuroendocrine disorders.
Understand the impact of the gastro-intestinal system on neuroendocrine system.
To explore the interaction between weight (excess), neuroendocrine involvement and health care practitioner attitudes.
