Monday, October 12th, 2009 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119

Happy Columbus Day. We have a great live show planned for 8AM EDT on Sirius 114/XM 119 Doctor Radio!

I have been a diet (reasonably successfully I might add) for almost four weeks now. One thing I noticed when I started my diet was that many restaurants have calories posted on their menus. Although I knew that before, I have to admit I never really noticed the numbers. It turns out I am not alone. A recent study showed that people did not look look at calorie numbers when making food choices. One of the study authors, Dr. Brian Elbel, will be joining me and Doctor Ira Show resident registered dietician (and ADA spokeswoman) Keri Gans to talk about the study.

Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any question you want and hear stories about my own office, will be at a special time this week: 8:30 AM EDT. Call me with your questions on any medical topic at all and hear stories from my own office...including a Flu Update!

Call me with any questions at all from 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM EDT!!! at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Celiac Disease. We talk about it all the time on the show. And we have had some of the world's experts on the line. There is a new study out talking about Celiac Disease and its effect on Mortality. The results of the study may surprise you, so you'll have to listen. Joining me to talk about this is Dr. Peter Green, an expert on Celiac Disease at Columbia University and the author of an editorial that accompanies the study.

If you are worried about Celiac Disease, its diagnosis or treatment, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

One of the scarier things about heart disease is that, often enough, the first symptom you experience is literally dying from it. October is National Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month and I am happy that Dr. Richard Page, the President of the Heart Rhythm Society, will be joining us on the line to tell us all about this fatal problem and some of the things that YOU can do to prevent it! If you or a loved one has a personal or family history of heart disease, you are going to want to hear this segment!
