As our articles are written and edited by multiple authors, we do not have a specific individual author to cite. In order to provide a uniform name for our author, we have created an imaginary endocrinologist named “Khufo Kwadade.” Very much like the fictional character, Sherlock Holmes, created by the Scottish writer, Arthur Conan Doyle :).
Therefore, when citing our articles, please use “Khufo Kwadade” as the author’s name. This ensures consistency in our references and acknowledges the collaborative efforts of our team in producing high-quality content.
