About Dr. Carrillo
I am a board certified Emergency Medicine Physician, in practice for over 20 years. So, how did I transition from emergencies to the metabolic health space? A combination of burnout, frustration and eye-opening education.
After dragging my reluctant nonmedical spouse to see his own PCP, he was instructed as homework to read a book to help manage his health – The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung. Well, he neglected to read it, but I devoured it. This initiated my own educational journey into the world of insulin and ultimately a deep dive into the complexities of metabolic health. After tinkering on my own health markers as well as family and friends, I became inspired to change the traditional approach within medicine of prescribing medication and treating disease. I could see a path to actually preventing disease and how to help people get and stay healthy, manage hunger, improve the quality of life and ultimately stay out of the emergency room.
I am inspired and now committed to bringing everyone along on this journey.
