I did my MBBS from Dr. VMMC, Solapur In 2005 and pursued my Masters in Public Health from SRM university , Chennai in 2011. After that I worked as District Programme Officer for National Programme for Prevention and Control of Diabetes, Cardiovascular diseases and Stroke (NPDCS) in Washim, Maharashtra. It was during this time that I realized not only that chronic diseases are increasing at a rapid pace in India but no matter how good the doctors are, no matter if you get best nutritional experts – the patient keeps on suffering. It made me ponder that why when a pre-diabetic patient or just over weight patient seeks help from a doctor in regards to losing fat – he gets an answer which he himself
“Reduce your calories and exercise”
Precisely these two things don’t work. And for whatever the reasons they don’t work – the blame is on the patient!!!
Blame no 1 - You didn’t exercised regularly / vigorously enough
Blame no 2- You must have cheated / Will problem issue
I started investigating on my own the world of weight loss, diets, nutritional shakes and what not. I realized that during my medical school I was not taught enough and I must look more deeply into it. Thanks to today’s online world and availability of research papers, I understood that I lacked so much knowledge on Human Metabolism.
It’s an ever evolving field as scientists across the world are still trying to understand human body and I am fascinated with it.
I don’t want to give you few diets; I want to teach you to take your health in your own hands. My achievement is long term relationship with my patients – who give me a call after a year or two just to let me know that they are doing well !!!
