This seminar lets you in on the abundance of information that ALT, AST, ALP, GGT and bilirubin can reveal about your patients – from oxidative stress to specific nutritional deficiencies, from heavy metal exposure to gluten exposure! You’ll never look at LFTs the same way again and your treatment outcomes will benefit accordingly.
Advanced Immunology Assessment 1.75hrs (Audio & Notes)

Rachel will take you through all the possibilities of the individual tests and then help you to join them together to make a clinical meaningful interpretation.
