Monday, April 26th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!

We have a veritable "evil" food group show planned for Monday! And yes, evil is in quotes, and meant to be a little (if not very) funny.

Salt! How could something so tasty and low in calories be potentially so bad for you? Join me as I interview Dr. Henry Black, the Director of Hypertension Research here at NYU and Dr. Jane Henney, professor of medicine at the University of Cincinnati and the chairman of the Institute of Medicine Committee which wrote a new report on salt in our diets titled "Strategies to Reduce Sodium Intake in the United States."

Find out about how salt works in affecting your blood pressure, and if some people are affected more than others. You will have to hear the recommendations that this study comes too!

Call us with your questions about salt, medications and hypertension at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Sugar! Tasty, and a problem. Join me and Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, the Medical Director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers in Hawaii to talk about the new book he has written entitled "Beat Sugar Addiction Now!: The Cutting Edge Program that Cures Your Type of Sugar Addiction and Puts You on the Road to Feeling Great - And Losing Weight!" I'm certainly no fan of excess sugar consumption, so any tricks that he has would be great to hear...

If you've ever had to hit that candy bar "or else" give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Digestive problems in kids is extremely common. We've been having a lot of adult gastroenterologists on the air, and while they are all extremely knowledgeable, its sort of funny to have them answer a question "well I'm not a pediatric gastroenterologist but...." So we are extremely happy to have Dr. Joseph Levy, a Professor of Pediatric Gastroenterology here at NYU on the line to talk to us about digestive disease in kids!

If you have any questions at all about digestive, liver or pancreas problems in your children, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We are back to Ask Dr. Ira at its usual time at 9:30 EDT! Call me with any questions that you forgot to ask your own doctor!
