Monday, March 14th, 2016 on the Doctor Ira Breite Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio


Bowels and Kidneys.  Yup, its all about waste here on Doctor Radio tomorrow.

Starting with bowels.  Dr. James Lewis, a Professor of Gastroenterology at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, will be joining me to talk about the Crohn's and Colitis' Foundation of America's Plexus Initiative.  Dr. Lewis, the CCFA's Chief Scientist, will be talking about how this portal for inflammatory bowel disease works.

IBD? Crohn's? Colitis?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

After that we will expand the gastroenterology conversation with GI update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest news is the world of digestive disease and answer your calls and tweets.

March is so many things: Colon cancer prevention month, pi day, and of course National Kidney Month.  Join me as I speak with Dr. Griffin P. Rodgers, the Director of the National Institute of Digestive and Kidney Diseases as we talk about kidney disease in general and kidney disease in African Americans in particular.

Find out what you can do to prevent kidney disease!

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me!  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Had appendix out on 1/20/16, fighting cdiff ever since-just finished my second round of flagyl since the first round did not work-total of 24 days on flagyl. what are my chances of getting rid of cdiff with what I have done so far?I am very discouraged Sharon from Wappingers New York

If flagyl doesn't work in c diff, there are several other options. most experts say two rounds and move on, but some say even sooner. Caterina Oneto will be on my show soon and is an expert in this so i'll bring it up....but talk to your doctor about next rounds of meds. (this is general, not specific, medical advice)
