He is extremely passionate about weight management and more so for people with diabetes. His specialist interests include complex severe obesity, diabetes, and diabesity.
He feels weight management is the core driver in the management of all modern illnesses. Weight management is complex as the reason for weight gain is multifactorial. Successful weight loss can only be achieved after ascertaining the underlying reasons for weight gain and providing a structured, personalized plan. Providing a personalized plan to 30% of the population, who are obese with the currently available models is not possible and unrealistic.

After completion of his short service commission he went to the UK for training and experience in the field of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Obesity. He is passionate about supporting the health of the people working for the Defence services.
