Monday, October 26th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Doctor Radio: Sirius 114 and XM 119
Although I am writing this on a springlike fall day, this past week the weather here has shown its teeth. And with that, comes allergies, cold and sinus infections. One of the common problems you have as a doctor is telling one from the other, especially as the treatments can be so different. Dr. Bernard Feigenbaum, MD an allergist at the NYU-Langone Medical Center, will be in the studio and we will be talking about respiratory "stuff" - Is it a cold...allergies... something else?
If you have been worried about the stuff coming out of your nose: call us! The number, as always, is a 1877-NYU-DOCS!
We have had some very sick people in the office recently with a variety of autoimmune conditions. One problem we commonly see in these folks in osteoporosis: and now a new study in the New England Journal of Medicine may explain why this is true. Bert Agus, MD, rheumatologist for Doctor Radio (and an associate professor at NYU), will be on to discuss this and other interesting autoimmune facts.
If you or a loved one are worried about celiac disease, osteoporosis, or such problems as rheumatoid arthritis, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Halloween is coming up! Then Thanksgiving. Then Christmas! Then New Years! And then several months of cold, cold winter. Are you going to be ready? Registered Dietician Keri Gans will be in the studio to talk about Smart Choices and High Protein Diets. There is also a lot of other nutrition news out there: you are going to want to hear this!
If you have a question about your diet or nutrition, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
I am looking especially forward to Ask Doctor Ira. We have a flu update (short answer: its here!), and eagerly want to answer your questions on any medical topic at all at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
