Monday September 27th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio.
We have a great show planned for Monday: a mixture of good old fashioned medicine and ripped from the headlines.
First, Avandia! The diabetes drug has been banned in Europe, but it is still available here in the United States. What gives? Join me as I speak with Marc Siegel, MD, the medical director here at Doctor Radio about what this means for you and your loved ones with diabetes!
Call us with your questions about this drug at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
,What about the middle aged man? Even though Doctor Radio does a great job of explaining so many health facts, sometimes I feel that its difficult for us men to get the explanation of health issues that literally "work for us." Join me and Greg Stebben, the editor of Men's Health Magazine as we speak about health tests that "men can't miss."
If you have any questions about preventative tests for either your or a male loved one, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Have you ever been a patient in the hospital? Have you ever eaten hospital food? Besides the taste have you ever wondered how all those people who keep hectoring you to eat healthy could serve you, well, that stuff? Join me and Dr. Preston Maring, Associate Physician in Chief at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland California and also the founder of the Permanente Group Farmer's Market. Learn about what Dr. Maring, and his son Ben, a fourth year medical student here at NYU, have done to help promote healthy eating. Ben Maring and third year NYU medical student Aviva Regev will also be joining us.
If you've ever looked at your doctor and wondered "how can this guy tell me what to eat" you are not going to want to miss this segment. Call us with your healthy eating and cooking questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will have a full segment of Ask Doctor Ira to end the show. Call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all. Anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!
