Hormones of Lactation: Too Much, Too Little?

Time-frame: 70-120
CERP: yes

We all understand that there are hormones important to lactation, but when it comes to understanding the clinical picture of a breastfeeding problem, we usually hit a wall. This talk takes a closer look at prolactin, oxytocin, thyroid, androgen and insulin hormones and their relative impact on reproduction and lactation from the perspective of “too much” and “too little,” ending with a discussion on the when, how, and what’s of hormone testing.
