Get to Know Me
What are some of the specific conditions you treat?
Some of the conditions I treat are type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, growth hormone deficiency, gender dysphoria, idiopathic short stature, congenital hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, autoimmune thyroiditis, panhypopituitarism, hyperthyroidism (Graves Disease), precocious puberty, delayed puberty, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?
Some of the techniques and procedures that I use in my practice are growth hormone stimulation testing, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring systems.
What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
As regards Type 1 diabetes, I am a proponent of low-carbohydrate (or at least diets with enough vegetables & low-carbohydrate fruits) to improve diabetes control. Overall, I am a proponent of nutrition-based approaches to complement traditional hormone therapies (i.e. insulin, growth hormone) to manage endocrine conditions. I am glad to prescribe puberty blockers and cross-gender hormones for transgender youth.
