Dr. Brian J. Fertig: Exploring Your Metabolism

Before the pandemic, the diet industry was a top-selling, $60 billion a year business. From diet pills, quick fixes, and fad diets, the American culture was inundated in ways to be thin. Losing weight and being healthy has become even more of an issue in our culture since the pandemic as people struggle to lose the “COVID 15.”


Dr. Brian J. Fertig, M.D. and the Founder and President of the Diabetes & Osteoporosis Center, is an expert in the study of metabolism and medicine and is here to share important information on how our metabolism affects how the body functions.


The Role of Stress in Metabolism


Metabolic dysfunction, which affects the energy our bodies produce, is primarily driven by stress. This dysfunction contributes to chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.


Fertig examines metabolism through the lens of physics. This new groundbreaking way of looking at an old problem has resulted in data-driven insights into the body’s biological systems. Fertig’s insights can integrate with Big Data and A.I. algorithms, producing future care which will be personalized, predictive, and precision based.


“These discoveries can change the way individuals perceive and approach their own health,” explained Fertig. “You shouldn’t have to be a doctor to know how your body functions. I’m glad to give people a tool to help them understand and take charge of their health.”


Experts agree that Fertig’s research is an essential work in endocrinology, health, and metabolism. Deepak Chopra, M.D., and Dr. Fertig has collaborated on several essential articles on the subject. Dr. Chopra says that Dr. Fertig’s research is vital information, “for anyone interested in the intersection between physics and medicine, especially related to the understanding how application of modern physical concepts may help achieve optimum health.”


As we make strides to contain the pandemic, it is clear that taking personal responsibility for one’s health is critical. “We now know that obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes are important risk factors for developing severe COVID-19 disease,” said Varman Samuel, M.D., Ph.D. Associate Professor of Medicine Yale University. “When the pandemic is contained, (there) will remain important health concerns in nearly all countries.”


Fertig’s passion for medical education and belief in the importance of interdisciplinary education was the inspiration for his research. His passion and dedication in this interdisciplinary approach will help to improve the quality and outcome of patient care as we move into a healthier future.


Dr. Brian Fertig, M.D., F.A.C.E., is the Founder and President of the Diabetes & Osteoporosis Center in Piscataway, New Jersey, established in 1994. Dr. Fertig’s experience in diabetes, endocrinology, and metabolism, including internship, residency, fellowship, and private practice, spans a period of 34 years. On his exploratory journey, Dr. Fertig discovered modern conceptual tools to improve the problem-solving skill sets of great utility for him, his practitioner colleagues, and the next generation of healthcare providers.
