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!
