Dr. Johannes W. Dietrich, M.D.
Dr Dietrich is a senior consultant endocrinologist and head of the Diabetes Endocrinology and Metabolism section at the St. Josef Hospital in Bochum, Germany, and of the Diabetes Centre Bochum/Hattingen at the Blankenstein hospital in Hattingen. He received his MD at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. He is a senior lecturer in Endocrinology at Ruhr University of Bochum and a specialist in genetic counselling in endocrinology and in stress medicine.
He has always been fascinated by homeostasis, allostasis and other concepts of biomedical cybernetics. He is particularly interested in why and how the logical structures of biological information-processing algorithms relate to their behaviour and that of the embedding organ systems. This motivated him to investigate the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis.
He has initiated multiple clinical trials. Key results of his work include the development of a mathematical theory of thyroid homeostasis, the development of a simulation program of pituitary-thyroid feedback control (SimThyr) that is today used in more than 100 countries for education and research, and of a mathematical method for calculating the thyroid’s secretory capacity and total deiodinase activity in vivo (SPINA). Additionally, he established the theory of thyroid allostasis in different conditions of stress and illness.
Dr. Sarah Myhill
Dr Sarah Myhill has a special interest in treating fatigue and in preventive medicine. She believes that many diseases are entirely preventable through good diet and nutrition.
