Women in their thirties well into their fifties commonly present to the office complaining of fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, acne, hair loss and decreased libido. Whether the patient is complaining of one or all of the above it is apparent that her quality of life is being affected. Many of these symptoms are frequently related to an imbalance or declining of their hormones.
Upon closer examination and analysis of patients’ prior lab work compared with current blood results it became apparent that often times only symptoms are being treated and not the underlying cause. For example, a 38 year old female with acne is commonly prescribed spironolactone yet the underlying origin or disease process, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is not identified or addressed. Additionally, perimenopausal women are often misdiagnosed and then prescribed inappropriate hormone regimens that result in an increase or new symptoms.
The intention of this webinar is to highlight and review a variety of cases with atypical patient presentations focusing on perimenopause and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The webinar identifies patients’ chief complaints and discusses their lab results. With this information an appropriate treatment plan is then developed. Practical clinical pearls are identified throughout the presentation.
This program is intended for Primary Care Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals.
Upon completion of this CME/CE activity the healthcare provider will be able to:
