Monday, August 8, 2016 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!

While I usually don't think about US Presidents and their wives during the summer, this year has certainly been an exception.  So, when I saw that Mary Todd Lincoln may have been affected by pernicious anemia, a form of vitamin B12 deficiency, I was intrigued.  Join me and Dr. Kenneth Hymes, a hematologist and Clinical Associate Professor at the NYU School of Medicine, as we talk about Mary Todd's clinical issues, how they may be B12 deficiency, and what you should look out for even if you are not going to be the first lady (or gentleman).

Anemia questions?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

After that, it will be time for GI Update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest in the world of digestive disease as well as answering your questions on all things stomach, liver and colon related at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.  Or send me a tweet!

The lower abdomen.  The pelvis.  So many different organs.  Which one is guilty of causing your pain?  Join me and OB/GYN Dr. Jessica Shepard as we talk about lower abdominal pain: GI or GYN?

Pelvic or lower abdominal issues?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We will end the show, as always, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any medical question on any topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give us a call or send me a tweet!
