Metabolic Syndrome and Hashimoto's with Elie Jarrouge MD

Season #1 Episode #44

Are you struggling to lose weight or manage healthy blood sugar levels? Maybe you’ve been diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or diabetes? Metabolic syndrome is also associated with patients who have thyroid dysfunction.

Dr Jarrouge is a board-certified physician in internal medicine and nephrology. He has been a hospitalist since 2013 in Houston, TX. As a hospitalist, his job is to take care of acutely ill patients admitted to the hospital for a myriad of medical conditions.

In his early 30s, he wrestled with a host of health issues including back pain, high blood pressure, prediabetes and was 35 lbs overweight. After being frustrated with conventional approaches, he took a radical departure from mainstream medicine and used lifestyle to completely reclaim his health.

His personal experience and realizing that patients who end up in the hospital the most are often metabolically sick, has shifted his professional interests to focus on nutrition as his main tool to combat chronic metabolic diseases, primarily obesity and type 2 diabetes. He currently coaches people remotely how to change their lifestyle and helps them reverse their chronic diseases and come off medications.
