Monday, May 24th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!
Memorial Day is coming! The summer is coming! But first, a really interesting show on Monday featuring celebrity, weird tropical disease, and digestive problems!
Celiac disese, the inability to process gluten, is a growing problem in the United States. Join me and Beth Israel Deaconess Gastroenterologist Dr. Daniel Leffler, the author of "Real Life with Celiac Disease: Troubleshooting and Thriving Gluten Free" as we discuss the latest research showing that the incidence of C-Sections is increased in those with babies who end up having celiac! Find out why this may be the case.
Call us with your questions about celiac disease at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
I love Key West. It has all the advantages of the Caribbean, and a K-Mart! What could be better! Unfortunately, as the United States Southernmost point, it can also be the entry point for some scary tropical diseases. Marc Siegel, MD, the Medical Director of Doctor Radio and the author of "False Alarm: The Truth About the Epidemic of Fear" will be joining me to talk about Dengue Fever in the Keys!
I am really excited about the top of our second hour. Walter Williams, Sr., Four Time Grammy nominee and a founding member of the O'Jays will be joining us to talk about a chronic medical condition that he has. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and known for such classic hits as "Love Train" and "Use Ta Be My Girl," Mr. Williams has released his debut solo album, "Walter Williams-Exposed."
Mr. Williams has never talked publicly about the medical condition he has. Hear his incredible story on Doctor Radio for the first time!
We will end the show with Ask Dr. Ira, where you can call me with any questions on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor...ask me!
