  • Ahai Luvai


    I am a Consultant in Chemical Pathology and Metabolic Medicine in Carlisle, England. My clinical role includes disorders of lipid metabolism, obesity, nutrition support, renal stone and bone disease.  My laboratory interests are reference intervals, performance of clinical decision limits and the impact of biological variation on disease monitoring.

    I became fascinated with Chemical Pathology and Metabolic Medicine during Core Medical Training after a placement in the Metabolic Medicine and Clinical Biochemistry Department at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

    I undertook specialty training in Yorkshire and researched Reference Intervals for my FRCPath dissertation.

    I love the specialty because of the interaction with a wide range of professionals including GPs and scientists which is essential for patient care. Additionally, the specialty lends itself to the adoption of new technology and innovation which is exciting.

    Becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists was a career highlight for me. I hope to inspire the next generation of pathologists.
