Thank you for joining us for Sunday’s live webinar Endo 101: Back to Basics. Moderator and journalist Dina Gusovsky was joined by Dr. Karli Goldstein, a gynecologic surgeon at the Seckin Endometriosis Center, and Jessica Murnane, author, podcast host, and endo patient, for an informative crash course on endometriosis diagnosis, treatment, and management.
Dr. Goldstein detailed the basics of endo symptoms, as well as the questions a specialist should ask you in your first appointment. As many patients can’t schedule appointments or surgery right now, Dr. Goldstein suggested telemedicine, as well as tracking your cycle via apps like Phendo or Flutter. Dr. Goldstein also emphasized the important difference between management and treatment options.
To manage endo symptoms, Jessica Murnane advised following an anti-inflammatory diet, emphasizing that it’s best to start by tuning in on how a particular food makes your body feel. “We don’t always want to hear the answers our body is telling us,” Jessica said, “but I think it’s a really good indicator on how to start eating a little better for endo.”
EndoFound will be answering the most common and urgent questions that came in during the Q&A shortly on the webinar resource page. And if you missed Endo 101, it's available to watch on our website, along with previous webinars about COVID-19 & endo.
