Functional and Non-Functional NETs

This episode is about managing the symptoms of functional NETs. To understand these symptoms, we start by talking about hormones. What role do hormones play in the human body? And what do they have to do with NETs?

We’ll help you understand the differences between functional and non-functional NETs. You’ll also learn why their shared characteristics make it hard to tell them apart.

A panel of NET specialists discusses ways to manage the many symptoms caused by functional NETs, including:

  • Diarrhea
  • Flushing
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Carcinoid crisis
  • Carcinoid heart disease
  • Emotional shifts

You’ll also hear from two NET patients who talk about their experiences with carcinoid syndrome and carcinoid crisis. This episode will leave you with more information than ever about symptomatic NETs and how  to better manage your disease.
