Endocrine issues are the most under-diagnosed issue concerning brain injury. The problem is that symptoms of endocrine issues can be misdiagnosed for many things such as depression. Symptoms then are masked and never dealt with the original problem.
I live in the second largest city in Indiana and there are only three Endocrinologists to serve millions of people.For this reason, we at Brain Injury Radio Network are so lucky to have the chance to have an Endocrinologist on to help educate us on both traditional and alternative practices.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. David Sorg, Endocrinologist, to Quantum Leap. He is an amazing man who has been proactive in solving problems that leave other physicians scratching their head. He was first trained in traditional medicine yet he also believes in alternative medicine. It is so rare to find an Endocrinologist whose passion to educate and help equals Dr. Sorg.
If you have questions you would like to ask Dr. Sorg, please feel free to message or ask on TBI QUANTUM LEAP Facebook page.
Tune in, call in, and together we can make a difference.

What is the thyroid gland?
Your endocrine system is a group of glands in your body (such as the pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, ovaries and testes) that secrete hormones (like growth hormone, thyroid hormone, insulin, estrogen and testosterone) that regulate functions such as metabolism, growth, development and reproduction.
The thyroid gland is the largest gland in the endocrine system. It is a butterfly-shaped organ that sits roughly in the middle of the neck, just below where the Adam’s apple is in men. In your physical exam, when your doctor places a hand on the front of your neck and asks you to swallow, they are doing so to feel your thyroid gland.
What does the thyroid gland do?
The thyroid gland produces three hormones: Thyroxine (T4), Triiodothyronine (T3) and Calcitonin. T4 and T3 are what most people think of as “thyroid hormones.” These hormones play a significant role in your metabolism and in energy regulation in the body. T4 and T3 are made in the thyroid gland from using the building blocks iodine (a trace mineral) and tyrosine (an amino acid). T3 has three molecules of iodine, and T4 has four. You make about four times the amount of T4 as you do T3.
After T4 and T3 are made, they are released by the thyroid gland into circulation. This release happens in response to stimulus from a part of your brain called the pituitary that makes a substance called Thyroid Releasing Hormone (TRH). TRH tells the thyroid gland to release thyroid hormones into your blood stream.
Thyroid hormones act on almost every kind of cell in your body to increase cellular activity or metabolism. If there is too much or too little thyroid hormone, the metabolism of your entire body is impacted.
The endocrine system controls the way your body functions. It produces hormones that travel to all parts of your body to maintain your tissues and organs. Here are a few of the areas governed by the endocrine system:
Responses to stress and injury
Growth and sexual development
Body energy levels
Internal balance of body systems
Bone and muscle strength
Adrenal glands - influence the way your body uses energy, they also release a hormone called adrenaline when you are under stress
Hypothalamus - part of your brain that controls hormone production by releasing different chemicals to the pituitary gland
Ovaries - produce estrogen and progesterone in women, and also release egg cells
Pancreas - releases the insulin your body needs to metabolize sugar; problems with the pancreas can lead to diabetes
Parathyroid - located behind the thyroid gland, they are essential for proper bone development
Pineal gland - connects the endocrine system with the nervous system; produces several important hormones, including melatonin, important to sleep/wake cycles and sexual development
Pituitary gland – likely the most important gland in your body, it is crucial to growth, mental development and reproduction; influences or controls the rest of your endocrine system
Testes - produce the hormone testosterone; in men, testosterone maintains sperm production and bone mass
Thymus - crucial to normal immune function in childhood; once a child reaches puberty, its tissue is replaced by fat
Thyroid gland – located in the front of your neck, it releases hormones that control your metabolism and govern the way your body uses energy
Join Curtner and Kerr as we host Paul Sandhu with the subject: Genetics in the Bible part 2 – Spirit and Body
"This topic is the very heart of the Bible and the Gospel, the topic of purging our Conscience.
This is about the Subject of the Reproduction of God, of how and why God reproduced Himself, first in Jesus, and then in us. And why was it necessary for God to have a body, we are the body of God, what does that mean and why was it necessary?"
You won't want to miss this episode!
Radio Liberty.com did a broadcast, as published by Rense.Com, about the Georgia Guidestones in Elberty County, Georgia which is a huge granite monument in eight languages which deal with four fields: (1) Governance and the establish of a world government; (2)Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality. One of the things that caught my attention was the reduction of the population of the world to their belief of the optimum of 500,000,000. That begs the question what is to happen to the rest of the 6.5 billion people? What are some of the depopulation mechanisms? Could it be genetically modified foods? Could it be bioterrorism, Could it be the legalization of homosexuality? Could it be the imprisonment of more people in this country than anywhere else in the world? Could it be trumped up wars, could it be another Hitler like leader?

The female reproductive system is designed to carry out several functions. It produces the female egg cells necessary for reproduction, called the ova or oocytes. The system is designed to transport the ova to the site of fertilization. Conception, the fertilization of an egg by a sperm, normally occurs in the fallopian tubes. The next step for the fertilized egg is to implant into the walls of the uterus, beginning the initial stages of pregnancy. If fertilization and/or implantation does not take place, the system is designed to menstruate (the monthly shedding of the uterine lining). In addition, the female reproductive system produces female sex hormones that maintain the reproductive cycle.
Concern has been expressed on how children conceived via third party reproduction, including sperm donation, egg donation, surrogacy, and embryo donation are faring. Is attachment as strong in these families. What is the nature of the parent child relationships? Host Dawn Davenport interviews renowned researcher Dr. Susan Golombok, Director of the Centre for Family Research, University of Cambridge and Dr. Martha Rueter, Associate Professor of Family Social Science at University of Minnesota.

Don't let diabetes a secret.
That is easier with Miss Idaho and the #ShowMeYourPump campaign.
Kids may not tell the truth about their diabetes and it may be to protect their parents feelings, and they are super geniuses at the process
If and when it is appropriate why to give kids time alone with their care giver.
Foster opportunities to engage in a peer community
Diabetes care is stressful for all. Overcoming that stress may require professional help
Shara Bialo is a board-certified pediatrician and is currently in her final year of Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship training at Brown University. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 9 years of age and has experienced her share of diabetes-related ups and downs. Ultimately, it helped shape her decision to pursue medicine and she now draws on her experience as both a patient and a physician to help others navigate life with diabetes.
