Mansur Shomali, MD,CM
Endocrinologist & Diabetes Expert
For most of the last two decades, Dr. Shomali has devoted himself to helping people living with diabetes.
“I’ve known I wanted to be an endocrinologist even before medical school. We take care of people living with medical conditions that have no cures, but when managed correctly, allow for a full and complete life.”
Dr. Shomali began his training in science at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He completed his medical studies at McGill University in Montreal, QC, Canada. He trained in endocrinology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, in Boston, MA.
“In the last few years, there has been an explosion in our understanding of the science of diabetes and metabolism. We are learning about the genes that contribute to this disease and are coming up with newer and better treatments.”
Dr. Shomali currently resides near Baltimore, MD, not far from where he grew up, where one in four households contains someone struggling with diabetes. He is affiliated with MedStar Health. Aside from helping people, one patient at a time, he started a training program for young physicians who want to become endocrinologists. He also has contributed to multiple, important research studies looking at better ways of treating diabetes. He currently serves as Chief Medical Officer for Welldoc, a digital health company that designs and builds apps that help patients and providers manage chronic conditions like diabetes.
In addition to authoring numerous research articles and textbook chapters, he is an associate editor for the American Diabetes Association journal Clinical Diabetes.
“From a medical perspective, the books present up-to-date information, drawing from the latest research in endocrinology and medical science. We think these books are the best available merger of medical and nutritional science, are fun, readable, and need to be on the kitchen table of everybody who has diabetes or knows somebody who does!”
