Dr. Kiltz and Heather discuss everything you need to know about how inflammation impacts your fertility:

INTRODUCTION

  • I’d like to start by hearing a little bit about you. Tell us about your professional background and training.
  • Why did you choose to specialize in reproductive medicine?
  • Take us through your career since your fellowship, including why you founded CNY Fertility.

INFLAMMATION

  • What should listeners know about the immune system and how it works?
  • What is acute inflammation, and how does it impact reproductive processes?
  • What is chronic inflammation, and how does it impact reproductive processes?
  • What are the causes of chronic inflammation?
  • What diagnostic tests can help identify causes of chronic inflammation?
  • What are the pharmaceutical ways you recommend treating inflammation (low-dose steroids like Prednisone, Humira, intravenous immunoglobulins and intralipids, etc.)?
  • What inflammation-causing foods should listeners avoid, and how does each impact our bodies?
  • What foods should we eat instead, and how does each impact our bodies?
  • How else can listeners reduce inflammation (exercise, etc.), and why does each of these suggestions help?
  • Do men have to worry about inflammation, too?
  • I understand CNY Fertility has egg and implantation enhancement protocols specifically aimed at treating women with inflammation issues. Can you tell us about them?
  • How exactly does treating inflammation improve patient outcomes? Is there any research that supports it?
  • Speaking of research, is there any new research being done in the area of inflammation and fertility?
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add on the topic of inflammation?

WRAPPING UP
