Monday, August 22, 2016 on the Doctor Ira Breite Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio

I was eating in a seafood place in Ithaca, New York (yes, I ocean nearby).  Ithaca is beautiful, the seafood was excellent, and absolutely nothing happened to me.  So of course, I started thinking about all the things that could have, and what to do about it.  Fish...scromboid poisoning.  Trees...allergies.  And the Epipen has become ridiculously expensive.  Join me and allergist Dr. Paul Ehrlich as we talk about the perils of histamine!

Allergy questions: give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

My GI Board review continues unabated. During GI update, I'll tell you some interesting tidbits and answer your digestive disease questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.  Or send me a tweet.

We all know that Jet Lag can mess up your day: those circadian rhythms do not like to be messed with.  Now research shows that how badly you get infected by a virus may be affected by these rhythms as well.  We will be talking with the authors of a paper from Cambridge University about how, in lab and animal models. the circadian rhythm affects how well viruses regulate.  

We will end the show, as always, 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 a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
