Speaker: Dr Jay Narainsamy
I am a specialist physician since 2010 and qualified as an endocrinologist in 2015. I have completed my masters in medicine in 2015. Endocrinology has always been my passion since registrar training and I am currently enjoying my experience immensely. I have focused a lot of my practice on Diabetes care as this is a difficult condition to treat as entire lifestyles need to be overhauled. The reward is immensely gratifying whenever I can make a difference in my patients’ lives.

I have studied at the University of Natal for both my undergraduate and postgraduate training.
I have been working as a specialist physician in both the public and private health sector until 2015. I am currently practicing as an endocrinologist in private.
