After earning her Bachelor of Science in Journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, Dr. Thangudu received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. She completed a vigorous internship in internal medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, where she treated thousands of the sickest patients in public, private, and Veteran’s Administration hospitals and clinics throughout Houston, Texas. She then relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana, to complete her internal medicine residency at Tulane University.
Dr. Thangudu moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to complete her fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, one of the busiest endocrinology training centers in the country. During her fellowship, she saw thousands of complex and rare cases in and out of the hospital and participated in research and quality improvement projects to improve care for people with diabetes.
After her training, she moved on to work at one of the largest endocrinology groups in the country, where her passion grew and pushed her to pursue nutritional training at Cornell University’s Center for Nutrition Studies in Ithaca, New York. Dr. Thangudu also completed a 200-hour yoga training so she could coach her patients on using mindfulness to prevent, treat, and reverse chronic disease.
Dr. Thangudu holds board certification in internal and lifestyle medicine, as well as endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism. She’s also certified in plant-based nutrition.
