Laboratory Testing - Single Course

.75 CME CREDITS – $55.00

While taking a thorough Medical History produces about 80% of clinical decision making, laboratory testing is unarguably a crucial factor in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care of the Interventional Endocrinology patient. During the “Quantum Interventional Endocrinology” lecture, we explored the implicit inability of classical Epidemiology in describing the hormonal landscape. Now with a new perspective of the benefits, limitations, and even the pitfalls of the various forms of laboratory testing, how is the practicing physician able to obtain an accurate picture of their patients’ true hormonal status? The available laboratory matrixes include blood, urine and saliva. Here we—in an unbiased fashion–delve into the claims made by those who provide these forms of testing. We also must appreciate the evolution of our laboratory methodologies, i.e. abandonment of inferior immunoassay techniques for more accurate and reliable mass spectroscopy. And because physicians must “operate” in the real world, how do we strategize the logistics of objective information management: patient lifestyle, compliance, ability to pay, and medical insurance coverage? The attendee will leave this lecture with not only a thorough understanding of all, but ready to implement same as soon as they return to their office.

John K. Crisler, D.O.

“Dr. John” Crisler is an Osteopathic Physician located in Lansing, MI. Dr. Crisler got his start in hormone modulation and recovery therapies protecting professional and non-professional athletes from the adverse affects of anabolic steroid use. He has distinguished himself in the field of Age Management Medicine by developing new treatment protocols for Testosterone, and Thyroid optimization, which have influenced the way physicians all over the world treat their patients. His patients also derive the benefits of his substantial experience in treating Adrenal Fatigue, and is one of few physicians who address the dreaded Post Finasteride Syndrome (PFS). Commanding a substantial Internet following, Dr. Crisler founded the first Internet Forum on TRT moderated by a physician, and has answered more medical questions pro bono than any doctor in the history of the Internet. Dr. Crisler is a strong advocate for TRT, which he describes as “the most significant advancement in men’s health in history.” His ethical standards led to a feature article in Playboy magazine in April 2007, called “Dr T to the Rescue” (“Dr T” standing for testosterone, is Dr. John’s nickname). Dr. Crisler has proudly become a mainstay at medical conferences in our field, for whom he has lectured, co-hosted and moderated across the country and around the world. His paper, “Testosterone Replacement Therapy: A Recipe for Success” after becoming the most highly read in the history of the field of Endocrinology, has now been expanded into a very popular book. Dr. John enjoys training fellow physicians, as well as the public, and is known as an informative, dynamic and highly entertaining speaker. Note: Dr. Crisler passed away suddenly on January 16, 2019
