Cardiology - Spotlight on the Heart
Organiser: Dr Sarah Myhill & Gilian Crowther.
The aim of this module is to provide a comprehensive, scientifically, and clinically validated outline of the effective diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease and mitochondrial dysfunction, incorporating the principles of Ecological / Functional Medicine. The aim is to arm trainees with the necessary knowledge and experience to achieve lasting positive outcomes for patients. We will focus on ecological principles behind common diagnosis and share simple, evidence-based treatment options.
The learning objective for this module should enable trainees and participants to:
Recall physiology and function as they relate to the most common conditions: metabolic syndrome and diabetes, hypertension, breakdown of the Krebs cycle
Understand the rationale for choosing the best diagnostic tests/tools for conditions: carbohydrate metabolism, cholesterol, homocysteine, mitochondrial dysfunction/blockage
