Dr. Shelly C. Lu, MD

Gastroenterology

OVERVIEW

Shelly Lu, MD, has been working in the fields of S-adenosylmethionine and glutathione metabolism for more than 20 years and has received uninterrupted funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) since 1992. Lu currently has five active NIH-funded research programs that investigate molecular mechanisms of fatty liver, liver injury, liver cancer and colon cancer. Many of the research projects have translational applications, such as identifying biomarkers that can differentiate simple fatty liver from those with more a severe form called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, identifying biomarkers that might predict prognosis and response to chemotherapy in colon cancer, and examining agents that are effective in the prevention and treatment of liver and colon cancer.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
