Four pioneering experts in the field of nutrition and metabolism outline the key role metabolic dysfunction plays in the development of chronic disease.
Impacts of Blood Glucose and Diabetes:
Dr Abbi Lulsegged (BSc MBBS MRCP FRCP) is a consultant physician with specialist interest in endocrinology and diabetes. He has a passionate interest in functional medicine matched by his passion for Endocrinology and sees patients who have unexplained symptoms, unexplained illnesses, obesity and reversing type 2 diabetes, when conditions allow. He believes strongly in trying to determine the root cause(s) of a patient’s problems and treating patients holistically. He enjoys teaching and has lectured at international conferences, grand rounds, academic half-days, GP talks and on professional MRCP courses, all of which reflects his broad extra-curricular interests.
Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals:
Dr Rachel Nicoll (PhD, MSc, Dip ION) is a medical researcher employed in both Umea University, Sweden and Helsinki University, Finland. She regularly lectures in Environmental Medicine and other topics in the UK and will be talking about endocrine disrupting chemicals and their involvement in chronic disease.
The Inflammatory Cascade:
Alessandro Ferretti (Dip ION mBANT NTCC CNHC) has practised nutritional therapy for over 15 years working and is a regular lecturer at UK Nutrition and Naturopathic colleges, as well as lecturing internationally on the subject of ketogenic diet and human performance. His specific research interests include environmental impact on physiology (the ‘big five’: food, physical activity, life-load, sleep and chrono biology). He will be looking at the key factors that influence inflammation, and the important role they play in chronic disease.
Endocrine Dysfunction and Chronic Disease – A Naturopathic Perspective:
Dr Roderick Lane (ND) is a leading Naturopath, lecturer and author. He has been practising natural medicine for the last 35 years, specialising in endocrine issues and fertility. He takes a naturopathic perspective on the wider endocrine system, including thyroid function, and links to gut health. He will look at some key disorders such as CFS, PCOS and other disorders that respond to modifying gut bacteria and stabilising blood sugar.
