 EP 1060B - Sleep Disorders in Children: Getting Kids Back to Sleep | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Sleep disorders in children are on the rise. Experts have pronounced sleeplessness a "hidden health crisis" for young people, with 10% of children presenting with diagnosable sleep disorders—but well over half are misdiagnosed.Sleep disorders in children are on the rise. Experts have pronounced sleeplessness a "hidden health crisis" for young people, with 10% of children presenting with diagnosable sleep disorders—but well over half are misdiagnosed. Every year, tens of thousands of children are treated for diseases such as diabetes, learning disorders, or chronic pain, when the real root cause of their ailment may actually be a sleep disorder for which they're not being treated. In his new book THE RESTED CHILD: Why Your Tired, Wired, or Irritable Child May Have a Sleep Disorder-and How to Help, neurologist and sleep expert Dr. Chris Winter identifies the signs and symptoms of the most common sleep disorders affecting children today, and he empowers parents and caregivers to understand the steps necessary to address and treat their children's sleep problems. From common issues such as too much screen time and night terrors to narcolepsy, sleep apnea, and more, The Rested Child leaves no stone unturned. This book pulls back the curtain on the relationship between poor sleep quality and pediatric epidemics related to psychiatric health, rising obesity, ADD/ADHD, pain disorders, and other undiagnosed disorders of sleepiness and fatigue.

 Encore Episode: If You're Gluten Free, You May Not Have to Be | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Although eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet may help ease your symptoms, it is a temporary solution. In his book, Eat Wheat, Dr. John Douillard, a former NBA nutrition expert and creator of LifeSpa.com, addresses the underlying cause of the gluten-free epidemic. Dr. Douillard explains that after 3.4 million years of eating wheat and only 500,000 years of hunting meat, humans are actually genetically better equipped to eat wheat than meat. He also discusses how a breakdown in digestion has damaged the intestinal wall and leaked undigested foods and environmental toxins into the body’s lymphatic system, causing “grain brain” symptoms and food allergies. Although eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet may help your symptoms, it is a temporary solution. Eat Wheat addresses the root cause: the inability to digest well and break down harmful pollutants and toxins that can lead to more serious health concerns. Listen as Dr. Douillard joins Dr. Friedman to share his research and why you might be able to add wheat back into your diet.

 EP 1057B - Aortic Condition More Deadly in Women than Men | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Women who experience acute aortic dissection—a spontaneous and catastrophic tear in one of the body’s main arteries—not only are older and have more advanced disease than men when they seek medical care, but they also are more likely to die Women who experience acute aortic dissection—a spontaneous and catastrophic tear in one of the body’s main arteries—not only are older and have more advanced disease than men when they seek medical care, but they also are more likely to die, according to research published online recently in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery. Benjamin A. Youdelman, MD, from Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, who was not directly involved in this research, explained that these variances in clinical presentation indicate that women may be waiting longer to seek medical care compared to men. This may be due to female patients being “stoic,” not considering their symptoms as signs of a significant problem, and not prioritizing their care. Overall, female patients had increased mortality, although, in the last few years, mortality between the sexes was comparable, which suggests recent improvements in care. According to Dr. Gleason, better recognition, earlier diagnosis, faster and more efficient care delivery, new and improved surgical techniques—including brain perfusion and reconstruction procedures—and subsequent longitudinal surveillance have all contributed to more lives being saved. Dr. Youdelman joins us today to discuss these findings, and how family medical history is a critically important factor for identifying patients at risk and saving lives.
