It’s becoming clear that endometriosis is more than just a reproductive disorder. The impact on a women’s health is systemic and wide spread.
So what role does the immune system play?
Respected women’s health expert, Leah Hechtman has dedicated much of her career to finding answers to endometriosis. Leah’s research and clinical observations have led her to focus on the immunological signals, largely in peritoneal fluid which can give major clues as to the severity of the disease and aid in tracking response to treatment(s).
She’ll be discussing this in greater detail at the forthcoming ATMS Endometriosis Symposium in Sydney, September 2017.
Today she shares with us some of her clinical pearls of wisdom on this topic.
