Monday, May 22, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!

Lots on the microbiome. That's probably the best way to sum up Monday's show.  We're starting with basic science and then heading to the "integrative."  We are going to find out what they are integrating.

Starting with the science.  Join me and Dr. John Rawls, PhD, of Duke University, who will be speaking to us about his new study showing that microbes can control actions of their animal hosts.  Creepy, but cool.

After that we will have Gastreonterology Update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions on all things GI at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.  Or send us a tweet.

We talk a lot on this show about the microbiome, and one of my points is how little we know clinically: while guys like Dr. Rawls make headway in the basic sciences, guys like me try to interpret what is known into clinical action.  But how much do we really know?   We'll be speaking with Dr. Mark Engelman, a permanent clinical consultant for Cyrex laboratories, about whether 'food sensitivities are really an autoimmune disorder.' I'm not sure what it means: lets find out.

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