With so much going on in the world, its important to step back and think about your health.  So we will.  Rachel Meltzer Warren will be coming on to talk about healthy diet and teenagers.  And Dr. Steven Griffen of JDRF will be coming on to talk type 1 diabetes.  And of course, Gastroenterology Update and #askdoctorira at 1-877-NYU-DOCS (8:30 and 9:30 respectively)

Monday, January 23, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio

Finally I'm back.  So many holidays at this time of the year, and everything on a Monday.  But, until President's Day at least, I'm back.  Starting with diet talk from registered dietician Danielle Capalino.  Join us as we talk about the microbiome, the FODMAP diet, and of course, fitting into yoga pants (I am not sure anyone would want to see me in them but that is probably besides the point.)

Diet and probiotic questions? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Speaking of the abdomen

Of course, we will have GI Update (board review edition) and Ask Doctor Ira.

If you've ever had abdominal surgery, a baby, or even deconditioning to your belly, you know how hard it an be to strengthen this often problematic area of your body.  Join me and Scott Sailor, the President of the National Athletic Training Association, as we talk about that all important core.

Had abdominal or pelvic surgery?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS or tweet me.

Monday, January 9th, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!

I'm back!  And we have a pretty digestive show planned.  Dr. Caterina Oneto will be joining me to talk about digestive issues ranging from the microbiome to the bile duct.  Questions about your constipation, diarrhea, gas or bloat?  Let us know at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

The mesentery?  What's the mesentery?  I thought I knew, and I may have been taught wrong.  Find out about this old, but new organ at 9AM Eastern when I speak with Dr. Calvin Coffey, the Foundation Chair of Surgery at the Graduate Entry Medical School at the University of Limerick and University Hospitals Limerick in Ireland.  Professor  Coffey and his colleagues recently published a study about the mesentery, refuting what we had been taught about it the past 100 years!

We will end the show with 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 or send me a tweet!
