General Info

About me

Upon graduating as a doctor and working in an EBAIS, I noticed that not in all cases my patients' consultations were resolved with pills, and in most, making changes in their lifestyle resulted in better control of the disease, but even more importantly, an improvement in the way my patients felt. Working together with the Nutritionist of my EBAIS, I learned the importance of food in people's health.

The combination of medicine and nutrition allows the comprehensive treatment of metabolic and gastrointestinal diseases. Conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and dyslipidemias imply an approach from several angles, taking into account not only the necessary medications, but also a change in lifestyle: diet, sleep patterns and physical activity. Doctors with nutritional treatments, you get better control of these diseases.

In addition, the treatment of obesity such as chronic neuro-psycho-endocrine disease and metabolic syndrome require the union of both professions, and some other health professionals, to achieve adequate control not only of weight, but also of eating behaviors .

My ultimate goal is to help my patients achieve their health and life goals.

The nutritional medical approach works as an aid to the traditional treatment of different conditions:
•Overweight and obesity
• Diabetes
•Arterial hypertension
• Dyslipidemias
• Inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn's and UC)
• Gastritis and gastroesophageal reflux disease
• Irritable bowel syndrome (colitis)
•Polycystic ovary syndrome
• Diabetes in pregnancy
• Hepatic steatosis (fatty liver)
•Renal disease
Outpatient nutritional support for:
• Recovery after surgery
•Under weight
•Elderly
