Most of us know that too much sugar is generally not great for us. We shouldn’t be eating too many cakes and lollies because it contributes to weight gain and inflammation.

In this webinar, we look beyond the diet. Beyond the calories and find out what sugar is actually doing to our cells at a biological level and how that impacts our ability to conceive and carry a healthy baby.

I speak with Associate Professor M. Louise Hull about her research into the impact of a high sugar diet on fertility and pregnancy outcomes.

Associate Professor M. Louise Hull is a gynaecologist and reproductive medicine physician with a biomedical science background. She leads the Endometriosis Research Group at the Robinson Research Institute and the Implantation Special Interest Group for the Asia Pacific initiative for Reproductive Medicine (ASPIRE).

Dr Hull works at Women’s and Children’s Hospital and in private practice at O and G in North Adelaide. Dr Hull’s practice focuses on improving fertility and early pregnancy outcomes for women with implantation problems. Recently she has explored the impact of disorders of glucose metabolism on implantation and miscarriage in clinical practice.
