Hopefully, you are doing well enough in the heat. We have just returned from Maine, where it was over 100 degrees (Maine!?). We have a hot summer show planned for you tomorrow.
Summer means bugs. And bugs means ticks. And ticks may mean Lyme disease. Every year I see it as my New York City patients return from their vacations. What do you do about it? How do you know if you have it? And what are your treatment options. Join me and Lyme Disease Doctor Dr. Daniel Cameron as we talk about this persistent problem.

In our second half hour we will have gastroenterology update: where you can ask me any digestive disease problems that you have and I will tell you about some of the exciting new discoveries in digestive and liver disease! Some points we man cover:
- Folate supplementation does not increase the risk for colon cancer.
- Celiac disease and its relationship to IBS symptoms.
- The use of Plavix and Proton Pump inhibitors together.
Continuing on with our Gastroenterology theme, we are going to explore Celiac Disease next. Dr. Daniel Leffler, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the author of "Real Life with Celiac Disease: Trouble Shooting and Surviving Gluten Free," will be joining us to talk about what to do when you have celiac disease.
Call us with your celiac questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all. Anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!
