Monday, September 13th on The Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!

Summer is officially over, the kids have started school, and we are all geared up for flu shots, colonoscopies, check ups, and the inevitable run of allergies and sinuses that come every fall. We have a great show touching on a variety of topics that come up every day in the office!

We talk about probiotics often, both on the air and in the examination room. But getting accurate information is difficult, even for practicing physicians. Join me and Dr. W. Allan Walker, the Conrad Taff Professor of Immunology and Director of the Division of Nutrition at Harvard Medical School as we talk about what probiotics are, where they live in you, and whether you should be taking them!

Its allergy and sinus season again! Allergies and sinus problems run from a little sniffle to potentially fatal problems. Join me and allergist Dr. Allen Kaplan, a professor at the Medical University of South Carolina, as we talk about allergies great and small. Dr. Kaplan is an expert in all aspects of allergy, and has a particular interest in exercise induced anaphylaxis.

School is starting. As a gastroenterologist, I'm pretty immune to my kids bellyaches, but GI related stomach distress is a common problem in both children and adults. Join me and Dr. Suzanne Havala Hobbs, the author of Living Dairy Free for Dummies as we talk about this and other common abdominal problems in kids and adults.

Call us with your questions about lactose intolerance and how to deal with it at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We will of course have a segment of Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
