Tomorrow, April 27, 2009 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119

We have an excellent show planned for tomorrow, loosely based on the idea of "getting in healthy shape for Spring."  During Ask Dr. Ira, we'll also talk a little bit about the growing Swine Flu epidemic in the United States.  

We're going to start out talking to Dr. Michael Bergman, and endocrinologist at the NYU Langone Medical Center about Pre-diabetes.  As an internist, I've seen this term bandied about by physicians and patients alike and I would like some straight answers to questions such as "what is it?"  If I have it, can I get rid of it?   Does it need medication?  How old do you have to be to think about if you have it...and many more.  I am also looking forward to your questions on the issue...its important and a bit confusing: the reason Dr. Radio was created!

Call with all of your questions on Pre-Diabetes to 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

After the break, we're going to bring back Steve Siegel MD, Doctor Ira's resident cardiologist.  We'll go over a wide range of cardiology topics, and really look forward to hearing your questions on anything from cholesterol to stents to a heart transplant!  Give me and Dr. Siegel a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

No chat about getting in shape for spring and summer would be complete without a little talk about back pain: the nemesis for so many of us.  Joining us will be Dr. Emile Hiesiger, A neurologist and radiologist and the author of "Your Pain is Real, and You Can Do Something About It" as well as "Say Goodbye to Back Pain."    We'll talk about what causes back pain, what you can do to diagnose it, and treatments ranging from medication, to minimally invasive procedures to surgery! 

We'd love to hear your back pain questions and problems...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We'll finish off the show with "Ask Dr. Ira."  We'll answer all of your questions on any medical topics at all as well as speak about the new Swine Flu cases in the United States.

CALL ME on any medical topic at all at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
