Monday, November 2nd, on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Doctor Radio: Sirius 114 and XM 119
We are trying a new segment on tomorrow's show: Doctor Ira's Got The Answers. There are so many excellent calls during "Ask Doctor Ira" that it is often difficult to get to some of the many emails that we receive. And although I do the show "live," many people listen to the show either on the taped replay at night or on Sundays. So for our listeners who may not have the ability to call immediately, we have developed this segment for you. I will review and go over listener emails.
Remember, if you can't call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS, you can always send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please make sure my name "IRA," appears somewhere in the subject line. Hopefully, we be able to introduce "Doctor Ira's Got the Answers" as a regular segment on the show!
It may be my diet, but I have been certainly thinking about the upcoming holiday season, with all of its wonderful eating opportunities (how I avoided Halloween is a testament to willpower and the World Series distracting me), and its affect on the fats in your body. Now while we all think about cholesterol, research is showing that TRIGLYCERIDES may be more important that previously thought in the development of heart disease! Cardiologist Dr. Dennis Goodman will join us in studio to talk about this and all of your other cholesterol/triglyceride questions.
If you have a question about what your triglyceride numbers mean, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
I noticed a bit of good news for older guys who like a drink now and then: moderate drinking may increase mobility in older people! Surprised? I was. Join me and study author Dr. Stephen Kritchevsky, Ph.D, the Director of the Stricht Center at Wake Forest University to talk about this and other research he has conducted in the field of aging and Geriatrics.
If you have a medical or lifestyle question about an aging relative give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Just because we're doing email, doesn't mean that we've forgotten the callers. There will be a swine flu update (plug for me: I have been on MSNBC twice in the last week talking about this) as well answering all of your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
