AUDIO: Dr. Theodore Friedman - What Women Need To Know About Vitamin D And How To Check Your Levels

Rate This

Recently there’s been a lot of talk about women deficient in vitamin D because well, they have substantially higher rates of developing cancer, heart disease, mood disorders, osteoporosis, and thyroid disorders. Hi, and thank you for joining us at EmpowHer – Women’s health online.

To discuss vitamin D deficiencies, I am joined right now by Dr. Theodore C. Friedman. He is a member of EmpowHer’s Medical Advisory Board, specializing in hard-to-diagnose and treat cases of adrenal, pituitary, thyroid and fatigue disorders.

He has been with UCLA School of Medicine since 2005 and serves as the Chief of the Endocrinology, Metabolism and Molecular Medicine Division at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, and from 1998 to 2000 he was the Director of the Multidisciplinary Chronic Fatigue Clinic at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and he is here today to talk about women’s health and of course, its connection to vitamin D. Hi, Dr. Friedman!

Dr. Theodore Friedman:

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
