Monday's show starts with a combination of two of my favorite things: hard to diagnose medical conditions and funky new technology. Join me a University of Chicago Gastroenterologist Dr. David Rubin as we talk about Crohn's disease and the use of the "Pill-Cam" in diagnosing this condition.
After this, we will have Gastroenterology Update, where I'll tell you some of the latest news in Gastroenterology and answer your questions on digestive disease. Whether its your stomach, your colon, or even your liver, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
Did you ever notice those President's getting grayer as they stay in office? Ditto the wrinkles and worry lines. That's why I'm happy I'm not the President! But it turns out that, despite these outward signs of aging, US President's live longer than their peers. Join me and study author Dr. Jay Olshansky as we talk about this interesting phenomenon.

We have quite the Gastrointestinal show lined up for Monday. The stress and eating of the holidays clearly can hit people in the gut and we want to talk about it.
Abdominal discomfort in adults is often difficult to diagnose and treat. Teens and tweens, not a group known for their excellent communication skills, are even more difficult. Join me and Dr. Joseph Levy, Professor of Pediatrics and Pediatric Gastroenterologist at the NYU-Langone Medical Center, as we talk about abdominal pain in adolescents.
Questions about abdominal pain and your teen or child...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Gastroenterology Update follow this. I will be reviewing some of the latest news in Digestive Disease and answering any questions you have on digestive disease at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We always talk about the H. pylori bacteria, but does killing it help with anything besides ulcer disease. If you have pain and no ulcer, will treatment help? Its a tough question, and experts disagree. Join me and Gastroenterologist Dr. Paul Moayyedi of McMaster University in Hamilton, ON as we talk about the role of treating H. pylori.
Any questions on H. pylori...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show, as always, with Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all...anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me! Give me a call at 1-877-NYU DOCS. And it doesn't have to be gastroenterology...it can be anything!
