When good management isn’t good enough to improve low milk supply, what else could it be? Hormones play important roles in lactation and when they aren’t working right, lactation may be affected. Conditions such as thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, prolactin problems and polycystic ovary syndrome affect lactation for some individuals. This session discusses how hormones work, what kinds of things can go wrong, identifying problems and developing treatment strategies.
The amount of foundational information before the specific conditions depends upon other sessions selected and time allotment.
