I completed my specialization at the Rheumatology department of the General Hospital of Athens , Evangelismos.
The specialty of Rheumatology relates to several autoimmune diseases, which are on the rise the last decades.
Rheumatoeid arthritis,Sjogren's syndrome, angylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and the systemic lupus erythematosus are some of the most common rheumatic diseases with autoimmune - autoinflammatory aetiology. Metabolomics can detect biochemical deficiencies and metabolic disorders that usually occur in autoimmune and chronic diseases, including rheumatic disorders. This allows us to target the disrupted metabolic pathways and restore the organism as close to its biochemical balance as possible with the utmost goal being to manage the disease.
The metabolomics approach can be beneficial for our health at multiple levels, in terms of quality of life and achievement of our health and everyday goals.
