Have you heard of Tirzepatide? If you haven't, I'm certain you will be hearing about it soon. Because Tirzepatide (trade name Mounjaro), is finally now available at pharmacies in Canada. We have been waiting a year due to the global shortages of this medication. Tirzepatide is a GIP/GLP1 dual agonist. It is very effective for improving blood sugar control and helping people with type 2 diabetes and obesity lose weight. This medication has shown outstanding blood sugar control and weight loss results according to the trials. I'm Dr. Sasha High, an obesity physician practicing since 2012. I'm one of the leading Canadian physicians in obesity and in this podcast episode, I answer all your curious questions about this new treatment for obesity including: How does Tirzepatide work? How do you take Tirzepatide? What are the side effects? How much does Tirzepatide cost? Will your insurance cover Tirzepatide? Should I switch over to Tirzepatide? References: Baggio LL, Drucker DJ.

This week we talked to Ashley Mann! Ashley was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when she was 20 years old but she had been experiencing symptoms when she was in high school. We talked to her about what it was like being a competitive cheerleader with active disease. We talked to hear about what she describes as trying "every medication on the market" and navigating countless surgeries. We discussed her decision to move to a permanent ileostomy and how close she is to living with short-gut syndrome. We talked about how she's had to learn to manage her healthcare and advocate for herself while moving frequently because of her husband's career in the military. We also talked about what it was like to get her care in the military healthcare system and her experience with friend-of-the-show, Dr. Anish Patel. Finally we talked about the importance of making healthcare decisions that you feel are right for you even in the face of differing opinions from the people most important to you.

Globally, diarrheal disease is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in children under five years, accounting for over half a million deaths annually. Diarrhea arises mostly from contaminated food and water sources. Worldwide 2.5 billion people lack proper sanitation, and 780 million lack access to safe drinking water. Diarrhea contributes to the incidence of malnutrition in children as each episode deprives the child of optimal nutrition. In resource-poor communities, children under three years have about three episodes of diarrhea annually.

This week we had the pleasure of talking with Bianca Hernandez! Bianca was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2015 and she almost immediately parlayed her diagnosis into advocacy for her community. She worked with her school system to get better access to the private bathroom at her school and rallied and inspired other students affected by IBD to advocate for this in their schools. She was selected to join the National Council of College Leaders program at the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation- USA which allowed her to lead in many other advocacy initiatives including step-therapy reform and Ally's law and to work on ensuring that educational materials developed were properly translated into Spanish. This program also introduced her to life-long friends and other inspiring young people in the IBD Community. We talked about her advocacy work and how her efforts to ask for what she needed lead her to becoming a fierce advocate for the whole IBD community. We discussed the perils of comparing your healthcare decisions and disease with other people's journeys and how to destigmatize medical decisions and to not compare yourself to others. We discussed how IBD impacts the Latinx community and ideas on how to raise awareness about IBD and colon cancer screening within these communities. Bianca was so much fun to talk to and is so inspiring. I know you'll find her passion as infectious as we did.

Medical missionaries from Western industrialized nations frequently encounter ethically disturbing situations when providing care in the developing world. This may be due to generally-recognized ethical principles being largely influenced by Western realities, beliefs and values. Individuals in resource-limited settings may have very different views on the risks and benefits of medical care, widely disparate access to reliable treatment, and decision-making that emphasizes honoring the opinions of the group over those of the individual. After briefly reviewing some basic tenets of medical ethics, this session will work through a number of actual cases with the goal of finding potential ways forward in each.
Most people assume that pain and illness are the straightforward result of injury and disease. However, one in six adults suffers from chronic pain or illness that is either “medically unexplained” or unresponsive to virtually any treatment. These patients often live with a psychophysiologic disorder (PPD), the increasingly common clinical term for very real stress-related and brain-generated medical conditions. Such chronic symptoms manifest themselves as everything from fibromyalgia to irritable bowel syndrome, and their incompatibility with conventional diagnosis leaves most PPD patients feeling neglected by the medical profession and hopeless about their future.Lisa is joined by Dr. David Clarke, the President of the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (PPDA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to ending the chronic pain epidemic. Dr. Clarke graduated from Williams College with a bachelor's degree in psychology, and he holds an MD from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He is Board-certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. His organization's mission is to advance the awareness, diagnosis, and treatment of stress-related and brain-generated medical conditions. The PPDA supports an evidence-based, biopsychosocial approach that is safer, more affordable, and more effective than traditional treatments of chronic pain. With a focus on uncovering stress and identifying trauma, the PPDA encourages patients to take control of their symptoms without drugs, surgery, or expensive treatments. Dr. Clarke is the organization's president, a renowned gastroenterologist, author of three books, producer of three films, and an international lecturer on psychophysiologic disorders. Learn more at EndChronicPain.org.The Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (PPDA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to ending the chronic pain epidemic by promoting awareness of PPD diagnosis and treatment. Educating medical professionals is the first step in creating a healthcare system that is more compassionate toward PPD and more capable of serving every patient. In 2021, opioids accounted for over 80,000 of the drug overdose deaths reported in the United States. The opioid crisis is a plague on modern health care, and much of its strength originates from those patients unable to find understanding and relief — like those suffering from brain-generated symptoms.“It's all about awareness,” says Dr. David Clarke, renowned gastroenterologist and president of PPDA. “The more people — both medical professionals and more members of the public — who know about psychophysiologic disorders and what makes them tick, the more we will see diagnosis and effective treatment on the rise.”The Psychophysiologic Disorders Association supports an evidence-based, biopsychosocial approach that is safer, more affordable, and more effective than traditional methods in treating chronic pain. With a focus on uncovering stress, trauma, and unrecognized emotion, patients are able to take control of their symptoms without drugs, surgery, or expensive treatments. What's more, the organization is a leader and chief facilitator within the industry, supporting some of the most robust resources available for PPD patients and professionals:This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/5948889/advertisement

This week we had such a great conversation with Dr. David Schwartzberg! Dr. Schwartzberg is a double-board certified colorectal surgeon at Mather Hospital and Columbia specializing in IBD, pelvic floor conditions, re-operative colorectal surgeries, J-Pouch disorders, and minimally invasive surgical techniques. We talked to him about his passion for colorectal surgery and how he spends any free time he has that's not with his family researching and learning more about it. We talked to him about his drive to find a career that helped people and had a true impact on the world. We discussed his interest in J-Pouches and improving complications that may come with previous surgeries. We explored how some folks that had been diagnosed with UC to start may now have a Crohn's diagnosis post J-Pouch and also upper GI Crohn's disease. We also talked about his love of music and how he and his wife have fostered that love in his 3 boys. We also talked about many other things including the improved technology in buckets but I cut that part out. Needless to say we laughed, we cried, we went off the rails but I promise you're getting the best part. We don't think Dr. Schwartzberg could be more more passionate about caring for people living with IBD and their families and we can't wait for you to hear that in this conversation too.

This week we had the pleasure of getting to know Alex Boyd! Alex was diagnosed with UC when she was 26 years old when she thought she had caught a stomach bug that had gotten very aggressive. It was only 2 weeks after her diagnosis that she was advised to have her colon removed and to start her J-Pouch surgery process. We talked to her about the dramatic way that she was introduced to our community and how she worked with her medical team to make this decision. We talk to her about the issues that she's experienced with her J-Pouch and how she's coping with that. We talked to her about how she's focused on her mental health to help with her coping skills and also how she's worked with her employer to get the accommodations that she needs to be the best employee she can be. We also spoke about how living with an illness like this can lead you to examine your life and your relationships and how that can lead you to making some big, and at times scary choices to allow you to grow and lead the life you deserve. We really enjoyed hearing Alex's perspective and all that she's learned and we know you will too.

Description: Co-host Ryan Piansky, a graduate student and patient advocate living with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and eosinophilic asthma, and co-host Mary Jo Strobel, APFED's Executive Director, speak with Dr. Jenny Huang, an allergy and immunology fellow at Scripps Clinic, who has a unique perspective of also living with eosinophilic gastritis (EoG). In this episode, Ryan and Mary Jo interview Dr. Jenny Huang about various EGIDs, her allergy and immunology fellowship, her EoG diagnosis, and the elimination diet she follows to treat her EoG. Dr. Huang speaks about patients she sees, and how her experience of following an elimination diet gives her passion for helping people and guiding them to a treatment plan that works for their lifestyle. She advises patients to ask their doctors lots of questions and tell all their family and friends about their condition so they can be supportive. Disclaimer: The information provided in this podcast is designed to support, not replace the relationship that exists between listeners and their healthcare providers. Opinions, information, and recommendations shared in this podcast are not a substitute for medical advice. Decisions related to medical care should be made with your healthcare provider. Opinions and views of guests and co-hosts are their own. Key Takeaways: [:49] Co-host Ryan Piansky welcomes co-host Mary Jo Strobel. Mary Jo introduces Dr. Jenny Huang, an allergy and immunology fellow at Scripps Clinic living with eosinophilic gastritis (EoG). Dr. Huang is passionate about gastrointestinal disorders and spreading awareness about EGID. She recently published a commentary about her experiences. [2:20] Dr. Huang explains that eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs) are diseases of the GI tract that result from eosinophils, a type of white blood cell causing inflammation. Depending on where the eosinophilic inflammation occurs, you can have different symptoms. [2:43] The role of the esophagus is to get food from the mouth to the stomach. When there is eosinophilic inflammation, you have eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) that can cause difficulty swallowing or food getting stuck. If you have inflammation in the stomach, that is eosinophilic gastritis (EoG). This can cause abdominal pain or nausea. [3:31] Dr. Huang is an allergy and immunology fellow. She trained in internal medicine. Even in medical school, she knew she wanted to be an allergist. In her second and third years of residency, she began having symptoms that she thought were related to the stress of putting together her fellowship application while working in the hospital. [3:56] One day, Dr. Huang had a terrible episode of vomiting and she knew she needed to get medical advice rather than trying to treat herself. [4:17] Dr. Huang learned about EoG for the first time after she was being evaluated for it. During her residency, she had learned about EoE, but not other eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs). Her allergist brought it up. Dr. Huang did a lot of reading and research after that. [4:48] Dr. Huang says there were times when she couldn't finish breakfast because of so much nausea and abdominal pain. She started carrying around TumsⓇ, which was something she had never done. Those things made her realize that something was wrong. [5:11] Dr. Huang was treated by the assistant director of the allergy fellowship program where she is now training. She says he is one of the nicest, smartest people she knows. Dr. Huang had done her internal medicine residency in the same program, so she knew all of the allergists. Dr. Huang had no doubt the doctor would figure out her problem. [5:49] Dr. Huang remembers the day she had her appointment with him. The intake nurse seemed to recognize Dr. Huang from when she had done rotations in the office, but she couldn't quite place her and didn't ask. [6:19] Dr. Huang describes her difficulties in following the six-food elimination diet that she and her GI doctor decided were the best option for her to manage EoG. Deciding on a treatment plan is a personal decision that should fit the needs of the patient. Dr. Huang decided on the elimination diet with no idea how difficult it would be. [7:02] Dr. Huang went to the grocery store the same day and was overwhelmed trying to read all the labels. She had never really read nutritional labels before. She stopped going to a lot of restaurants because she had to ask so many questions before ordering. [7:27] Ryan shares childhood experiences of going from an elemental diet to a strict elimination diet. He relates to Dr Huang's experiences at the grocery store and cooking. [8:15] When Dr. Huang first began the elimination diet, most of her allowed foods were fruits, vegetables, and meats. She was able to add back most foods within a year but the hardest food for her to avoid in the beginning was soy. Her favorite food is tofu. Soy was the first food she added back and she was so happy when she was okay. [8:44] When she started reading labels for her elimination diet, Dr. Huang learned that some soy sauce has wheat in it. So, she started buying soy sauce that doesn't have wheat in it. [8:57] Dr. Huang did the elimination diet as an adult and found it incredibly difficult. She applauds Ryan for doing it as a child. Ryan is grateful to his parents for helping him navigate that along the way. [9:20] In Dr. Huang's article, she recommended that providers try living on an elimination diet for a week. It's challenging! She has not been able to convince anyone to try it. When she suggests it, the look on their face is telling! It's so hard. If people don't see a reason to do it, it's just not done. [10:15] An anecdote from Dr. Huang's article was about eating at the American College of Gastroenterology conference. She asked the waiter to help her find something free of milk, wheat, eggs, soy, seafood, and other ingredients she could not have. Ryan felt it was so relatable. Ryan was at a conference this summer where he could not eat. [11:13] Dr. Huang brings a lot of snacks with her when she travels. She sticks to brands that she knows are safe for her. She searches ahead of time for restaurants with allergen menus. At restaurants, she always shares what foods she is avoiding so they can help her with choices. [11:42] Mary Jo mentions that the APFED conferences provide appropriate menu choices for people on elimination diets. [12:17] Dr. Huang's partner is a gastroenterologist specializing in esophageal diseases. He was in general GI fellowship training when Dr. Huang was diagnosed. He has been supportive of what Dr. Huang has been through with the diagnosis. He did the elimination diet with her, helped her cook, and supported her. [13:27] The elimination diet is the only way Dr. Huang has managed her EoG. She has had repeat endoscopies with biopsies and the diet has been working so far. She's keeping her fingers crossed. [14:00] When Dr. Huang was first diagnosed, she wasn't sure how bad her disease was or how much worse it would get and it frightened her. Fortunately, her symptoms have been controlled so it hasn't impacted her career that much. But she feels like this diagnosis has given her a calling and a direction for her career. [14:33] Dr. Huang plans to study EGIDs. She has been doing EGID research studies during her fellowship. She wants to help people with it. She wants people to know that they're not alone and even though we don't have all the answers now, we will one day. [15:08] Dr. Huang gets excited when she sees that someone is coming in with EoE or EGIDs because she automatically feels a special connection to them. She spends a lot of time counseling on the diagnosis, making sure the treatment plan fits their lifestyle and is something the patient can realistically do. [15:29] Dr. Huang thinks back to when she would recommend dietary changes without understanding what that meant for the patient. Having gone through it, now she can better counsel patients. [16:38] Dr. Huang discusses quality of life issues of treatment with her patients. She explains how difficult an elimination diet is. Currently for EoE, the only FDA-approved treatment is dupilumab by injection. [18:02] Dr. Huang's advice for those with a new diagnosis of EoG is to talk to your doctor and ask a lot of questions. Make follow-up in-person appointments. Make a list of all the questions you have and talk through it with your doctor. If you pursue an elimination diet, get with a dietician to help navigate that. It's confusing in the beginning. [18:36] Patients, talk to your family and friends. They can help support you at medical appointments and procedures. They can call ahead to restaurants and make sure your dietary restrictions can be met there. They can accommodate your dietary restrictions at home. Don't hide your diagnosis from the people around you. Hiding makes it more difficult. [19:05] Mary Jo thanks Dr. Jenny Huang for joining them to share her experience and ask for additional thoughts. [19:18] Dr. Huang wants people with EoG to know that they're not alone. EoG is rare but it's an increasingly recognized and diagnosed disease. It's easy to feel alone when your doctor tells you that you have a rare disease. Someone else out there knows how you feel. [19:48] Ryan thanks Dr. Huang for sharing all of her experiences today.

That can cause symptoms like abdominal pain or nausea.” — Dr. Jenny Huang “Deciding on a treatment plan is a personal choice and it needs to fit someone's lifestyle and their individual needs. What's right for one person may not be right for someone else.” — Dr. Jenny Huang “Did you know that soy sauce has wheat in it? I had no idea until I started reading all the labels. So, we started buying soy sauce that doesn't have wheat in it!” — Dr. Jenny Huang “When I was first diagnosed, I wasn't sure how bad my disease was or how bad it was going to get. I read a lot about the possible outcomes and it really scared me. … I couldn't imagine what it would be like if my symptoms progressed.” — Dr. Jenny Huang About Dr. Jenny Huang Dr. Jenny Huang is an allergy and immunology fellow at Scripps Clinic.

Host: Peter Buch, MD, FACG, AGAF, FACP Guest: Naga Chalasani, MD With the increasing incidence and prevalence of cirrhosis in patients, healthcare professionals have to routinely consider giving anticoagulants to these patients. Understanding how we can safely administer these types of medications to cirrhosis patients is important. To learn more, tune in with Dr. Peter Buch as he speaks with Dr. Naga Chalasani, Co-Author of the article, titled “The Safety of Anticoagulants and Antiplatelet Agents in Patients with Cirrhosis,” which was published in Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics in November 2022, and the David W.

Today, I share and talk about a recent presentation and case study which linked kratom use and ulcerative colitis flare ups. I thought that this was a stark reminder of how much we don't know about kratom's effects on our bodies and specifically relating to people with certain comorbid medical issues. In addition to this, there was one specific thing that stuck out to me about this… salmonella was present as well. Was this the cause or was kratom, or was it both? It seemed like an interesting case study to me. The work was published by Hassan S, et al "Kratom-induced flare of acute severe ulcerative colitis" at the American College of Gastroenterology 2023 conference, which can be found here: https://1fb872b80d3df585b41f-41f06c41ae393ec809a826abae176f86.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com//2492846-4000px.png *** HAPPY HIPPO Discount ***: Coupon code EVERYTHINGKRATOM at checkout, or this link - https://happyhippoherbals.com/r?id=ul2k1j DISCLAIMER: KRATOM IS NOT APPROVED BY THE FDA.
