Isha Sharma

Hey, Myself Dr. Isha Sharma. I am an avid food lover, not so voracious reader ( although I am enjoying recent addition of this hobby). I am a researcher by profession, but I feel deep desire to share what I have experienced. Really looking forward for enriching and insightful discussion with my readers.

Being a researcher i generally explore area of reproductive biology, Metabolic disorders, diabetes associated renal disorders. I love reading, exploring new places. I would encourage my reader to submit their topic of interest on what to write for upcoming post.. I would certainly try my best to cover all those topics. Love and Blessing: Isha sharma

New passion: Love to explore life ( scientifically and spiritually). I enjoy my morning yoga and HIIT sessions. Want to be more caring and sharing.
