Monday, August 17th, 2009 on the Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!
I am back from vacation in beautiful Montana and Idaho and ready to go! As you drive to wherever you are going for work (or hopefully, vacation) we have a great show lined up to help you expand your medical knowledge in interesting, practical and useful ways.
As I was enjoying yet another giant steak in Montana (you can have them for breakfast) I started wondering about some of the things I could do naturally to help reduce my cholesterol after I returned. Joining me again to discuss both the medical aspects of cholesterol as well as some of the alternative products that may help lower it is Dr. Dennis Goodman, Cardiologist.

Speaking of cholesterol, I had seen a young woman in the office with a high number. Interestingly, her thyroid was low as well. When I treated the thyroid, her cholesterol returned to normal! How strange is that. Joining me to talk about that commonly blamed and completely misunderstood organ at the base of your neck is Dr. Kenneth Burman, the Chief of Endocrinology at Washington Hospital in Washington, DC.

In our second hour, Keith Siller, MD will be joining me to talk about some new research in Dementia. It seems that, like so many things in health, diet and exercise matter in preventing dementia. Find out all the details, and ask Dr. Siller any questions you want on stroke, Alzheimers, and the current treatments and preventitive strategies for these life alterning medical problems. Call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We have a special Ask Dr. Ira tomorrow as well. In addition to open phones, Dr. Howard Hochster will be joining me to talk about some of the latest findings in colon cancer treatments and prevention. We will both be answering your calls on any medical topic at all. Give us a ring at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
