Monday, May 19th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio

Fodmaps!  Heimlich!  Yes we have both on the air on my show Monday.

Starting with Fodmaps.  We've been talking about them and we've been confused by them.  And sometimes, we're not even sure, as doctors, why we put people on them. What's the evidence and what's the diet?  Find out!  Join me and Doctor Peter Gibson, Professor and Director of Gastroeneterology at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia as we talk about the research he has conducted on IBS, the Fodmap and gluten free diets.  Find out what it means to you!

Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

After this we will continue our discussion of IBS and all of Gastroenterology with Digestive Disease Update.  Hear some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and call or tweet me your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

If you've ever eaten at a restaurant in New York, its hard to avoid looking directly at  the "Choking" poster that is prominently posted on the wall.  And while the poster does detract from the fine dining experience, choking to death on a dinner roll is definitely worse.  Join me as I talk to Dr. Henry Heimlich, the 94 year old father of the procedure (and lots more).  He has just written a memoir entitled "Heimlich's Manueuvers: My Seventy Years of Lifesaving Innovation."  Find out about his life and career.  Later in the show, Arthur Lih will join us to talk about a new device, "Life-Vac," that can help people who are choking and cannot have the Heimlich or other maneuvers performed on them.

At the end of the show, it will be time for "Ask Doctor Ira," where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
