Monday, February 28th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!
The end of February. You can almost smell the spring coming (through the cold, ice and wind that still blankets our area). New beginnings are a theme of the show today.
Craig Pinto was a Division I athlete who was sidelined after being diagnosed with Crohn's disese and Celiac left school. After resolving his dietary and health issues he returned to the Arena Football League, where he signed with the New Jersey Revolution. He is now a high school coach and has started a new non-profit group called Kicking 4 Celiac. His kicking has gotten him into the Guiness Book of World Records...find out why!
Call us with any questions you may have about Celiac or Crohn's disease to 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
The end of winter is also a time to think about, well, the beginning of allergy season. Join me and Dr. Paul Ehrlich as we talk about whether being too clean may lead to allergies! Dr. Ehrlich is also the author of "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Your Child’s Allergies and Asthma."
Allergies? Worried about the hygiene hypothesis? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Its also time to think about the future. Lots of people have been asking me about personalized medicine...but what is it and where is t going. Join me, Paul Livingstone, the senior editor of R&D Magazine, and Boonsri Dickinson, who had her DNA tested by three different companies, to find out what's going on in the world of Personal Genomics.
