Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism
Dr. Kalyani is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology. She moved to Baltimore after graduating from Harvard College and completed her medical degree at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she also trained in internal medicine and endocrinology. During this time, she developed an interest in diabetes and now, as part of our faculty, sees patients regularly in the Diabetes Center.
As part of our staff, Dr. Kalyani sees patients with all types of diabetes. “Diabetes is chronic disease where the patient has a pivotal role in managing their disease. A team-based approach is key,” she says. “I aim to facilitate close partnerships with the Diabetes Center’s dieticians and nurse educators as part of each patient’s complete diabetes care”.
Dr. Kalyani is an active researcher and is currently involved in clinical studies exploring accelerated muscle loss as a complication of diabetes in older adults. In addition to her clinical and research activities, Dr. Kalyani is involved in the Trinidad and Tobago Health Science Initiative, a project that works with local physicians to improve the quality of diabetes care for this country. She is also the endocrinologist for the Johns Hopkins Islet Autotransplantation program.
Dr. Kalyani is Editor of the book, The Johns Hopkins Diabetes Guide: Treatment and Management of Diabetes for healthcare providers. She is also Editor of the 2012 Johns Hopkins Diabetes White Paper for patients and their families.
