Health Pod Episode 7 – Part 1

Posted in Endocrinology, Podcasts

Pregnancy is a stress test for the thyroid, experts tell us. That is why the 1st Health Pod episode of the year is dedicated to pregnancy, as it causes significant changes to the levels of thyroid hormones (even in women without any thyroid problems), and also to the serious effects of Hypothyroidism during pregnancy.

With the help of the guest expert Mr. Ioannis Ilias, Director of the Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, of the General Hospital – Obstetrics “ELENA VENIZELOU”, we will ask and learn everything about the thyroid, pregnancy, the type of hypothyroidism that affects pregnancy in all its stages and how to deal decisively with its effects, simply by choosing the right thyroxine.
