Upon completion of this workshop, the healthcare professional will be able to:
- While hyperthyroidism is a significant cardiovascular risk factor causing 20% premature death rate, participants will identify how HDT treatment does not appear to be a significant cardiovascular risk.
- Interpret the myths of HDT risk factors, the first being that HDT can increase the risk of developing osteoporosis and the second is that it increases cardiovascular risk.
- Recognize the cardiovascular risks of HDT appear to be low. HDT is at least as safe as or safer than many psychiatric medications.
- Recall how the chronic misuse of terminology in literature (i.e. calling all suppressed TSH or elevations of thyroid hormone to mean hyperthyroidism) are at best confusing in determining the difference between HDT and hyperthyroidism.
