Monday, October 15, 2012 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!
We are back on the air Monday with a pretty incredible show planned. From dealing with difficult heartburn issues to the potential intellectual benefits of chocolate, we deal with it all. And take your questions.
Starting with the heartburn thing. Many people have heartburn, and a percentage of those have a precancerous lesion called Barrett's esophagus. We've talked about the things that can be done for people with this problem...now we'll hear from the guy who does it. Join me and Dr. Seth Gross, the NYU Hospital Director of Endoscopy as we talk about new things to do if you have Barrett's esophagus.
Worried about your heartburn? Told that it was precancerous? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
After Dr. Gross we will open it up to all types of digestive disease! Yes, it time for Gastroenterology Update, where I will answer your questions on GI disease and tell you some of the latest updates from the world of Gastroenterology!
Chocolate. Does it make you smart? Despite my theories as a kid that it did, my mother assured me I was wrong. But what did she know? Join me and Dr. Franz Messerli, the director of hypertension at St. Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital Center, as we talk about his study, recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showing that per capita chocolate consumption is associated with the number of nobel prize winners in a given country. A pity I don't have a sweet tooth.
We will end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions about any medical issues at all and I will be happy to answer them. Any thing that you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS
