Liver Transplant and Organ Donation
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 14,000 people are waiting for a liver transplant today in the U.S. Liver transplant usually is reserved as a treatment option for people who have significant complications due to end-stage chronic liver disease. In rare cases, sudden failure of a previously normal liver may occur. The liver is just one of several organs, including kidney, heart and lung, that have long transplant waiting lists. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, transplant surgeon Dr. Charles Rosen will discuss liver transplant and the importance of organ donation. Also on the program, Toni Mangskau, clinical trials referral coordinator at Mayo Clinic’s Cancer Education Center in Rochester, Minnesota, will explain how clinical trials are conducted.

Vitamin D Recommendations
Vitamin D is found in many foods, including fish, eggs, fortified milk and cod liver oil. The sun also adds to the body’s daily production of vitamin D, and as little as 10 minutes of exposure is thought to help prevent deficiency. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which forms and maintains strong bones. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, preventive medicine specialist Dr. Donald Hensrud will cover the latest vitamin D recommendations and discuss the second edition of The Mayo Clinic Diet. Also on the program, Dr. Rekha Mankad, director of Mayo Clinic's Cardio-Rheumatology Clinic, will discuss women and heart disease as part of American Heart Month.
