A Word From Ana Maria Kausel, MD

Hormone health, obesity, and nutrition are topics of discussion that are strong targets for misinformation and false statements that lack clinical evidence. Because of this, I'm glad to be part of Verywell. My goal is to bring accurate and reliable evidence-based medicine that can be applied to daily living. It's important that patients can proactively educate themselves before they have to present with any symptoms to a physician.
