Monday, April 13th on the Doctor Ira Breite Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio

New technology and old constipation.  We have a great show planned for Monday.  Starting with constipation.  We talk about constipation and we talk about Irritable bowel syndrome with constipation.  Is it different?  Is it the same?  More importantly, how you should you and your doctor approach these two problems?  Join me and University of Michigan Gastroenterologist Dr. William Chey as we talk about his new study looking at the two.

Constipated?  IBS?  Both?  What can you do about it...Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

After that we will expand the conversation with GI Update, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions and tweets!

Sometimes we have to get the basic science to understand more about the medicine.  Take infections for example.  If you think you have a urinary tract infection, your doctor needs to send a sample of your urine to a lab for culture and sensitivity testing.  What if there was an easier way?  Join me and Dr. Waseem Asghar of Florida Atlantic University as we talk about how they are "developing point-of-care (POC) and microfluidic biosensors for rapid detection of various diseases including Cancer, Candidiasis, and HIV." Really.  On a smart phone.  Wow.

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question about any medical topic: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me!  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
