Monday, June 21st on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirus 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio

I am back from vacation and we are ready to go! We have a great show planned for you involving celebrity disease, consumer safety and a gastroenterology update!

Lady Gaga is in the news today for being kicked out of the NY Yankees clubhouse. Forever. But a few weeks ago, she layed some hints down that she might have lupus. Although it may have added to her mystique as a performer, it added little to helping people to understand anything about this most complicated of autoimmune disease. Join me and Dr. Anca Askanase, an Assistant Professor of Rheumatology at the NYU School of Medicine and a researcher at the Seligman Center for Advanced Theraputics at the NYU Hospital for Joint Disease as we talk about this disease, how to diagnose it and whether you or a loved one may have it.

Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS with you questions about the diagnosis and treatment of this ill-defined, potentially fatal disease!

I've been working real hard the past year trying to keep my weight down and exercise more. "Bulk" has never been an issue for me....I'm full of the stuff. But many people buy protein shakes and other supplements to help build muscle and stay healthy. Dr Urvashi Rangan, an environmental health scientist and the technical director of policy at the Consumer's Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports, will come on the line and tell us about their new study showing what else is in many of these supplements!

If you (or your child) is considering taking protein supplements for exercise, you are not going t want to miss this! Give us a call with your supplement questions to 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

There is a lot going on in the world of digestive health. Dr. Paul Miskovitz, gastroenterologist and author of The Doctor's Guide to Gastrointestinal Health, will come on and tell us about some of the exciting new trends in GI! Food allergies, pain medication and ulcers, and your digestive questions...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

We will end the show with Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all...give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
