Monday, March 14. 2011 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Doctor Radio: Sirius 114 and XM 119 (8AM EDT)

We are going to start off tomorrow's show with a medical report on the situation in Northern Japan. Dr. Marc Siegel, the Medical Director of Doctor Radio, will be joining me to talk about what's going on there.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Join me and gastroenterologist Dr. Patricia Raymond as we speak about this problem. Dr. Raymond also speaks as her alter-ego, Ms. Butt Meddler. Who knew you could have a colonoscopy while wearing sequins!

Call us with your colonoscopy questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

I can tell you as a gastroenterologist that people do not like talking about their gas or heartburn. They like speaking about fecal incontinence even less. A recent study suggested that up to 20% of women may suffer from this problem. Join me and Mount Sinai colo-rectal surgeon Dr. Alex Ky-Miyasaka as we talk about this problem, and the various non-surgical and surgical options to help it.

If you or a loved one has had a problem with fecal incontinence give us a call at do not have to give your real name.

Hypertension? prehypertension? If your pressure is "on the borderline," do the side effects of the medications outweigh the benefits. Find out when I interview NYU Hypertension expert Dr. Henry Black.

Confused about hypertension and prehypertension. Wondering about the medication you are on? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any medical question at all. Call me with questions you forgot toask your own doctor at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
