Sex steroids have received increased attention in various settings. In transgender persons, sex steroids are used clinically as a gender affirming treatment. Among recreational athletes, steroids are used illicitly to gain increased muscle strength and performance.
With the rapid expansion of the use of sex steroids, there is an increasing need to understand the consequences of sex steroids use in transgender persons. Further, in doping, there is a need to increase the knowledge on how to handle the consequences of long-term illicit steroid use.
Over two days, this DDEA meeting brings together clinicians and researchers of all career levels engaged or interested in the health and treatment of doping patients and transgender persons. The primary aims of the event are to provide a forum for raising awareness, widening and deepening the knowledge base about how to best manage and care for these groups of people, and connecting people with similar research and clinical interests across Denmark and beyond Danish borders.
At the meeting, you will delve into cutting-edge findings – beginning with a review of these rapidly growing fields, then moving into a focus on mental health aspects, best clinical practices related to treatment, and much more.
This meeting will deepen and widen your knowledge about the clinical treatment after doping and in transgender persons.
During the meeting, you will explore:
After participating in this two-day meeting you will have a better understanding of what gender-affirming hormone treatment is. You will be able to navigate the sensitive and political nature of the topic. In addition you will be better able to understand the symptoms and complaints of persons of long-term use of androgenic steroids.
A debate session at the end of day one will further provide the opportunity for sharing knowledge across research fields, areas of expertise and borders. We aim to support a safe and comfortable environment for all participants to gain new insights into these fields.
This meeting is intended for all clinicians and researchers interested in the topic of the meeting. Researchers from basic, translational and clinical science working in any field of endocrinology or metabolism research, and beyond, in academia, hospitals and industry, within Denmark and abroad, are welcome.
