Celiac Disease Plus Eating Smart During the Holidays
Celiac disease is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine. Over time, this reaction damages your small intestine's lining and prevents it from absorbing some nutrients. The intestinal damage often causes diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating and anemia, and can lead to serious complications. In children, malabsorption can affect growth and development, besides causing the symptoms seen in adults. While there's no cure for celiac disease, for most people, following a strict gluten-free diet can help manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Joseph Murray, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, will discuss diagnosing and treating celiac disease. Also on the program, Dr. Amy Degnim, a Mayo Clinic breast cancer surgeon, will explain ductal carcinoma in situ, which is considered to be the earliest form of breast cancer. And Katherine Zeratsky, a Mayo Clinic registered dietician nutritionist, will offer tips for eating smart during the holidays.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, also known as GERD, affects an estimated 1 in 5 American adults. GERD occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus from the stomach. The lining of your esophagus is more delicate than the lining of your stomach, so acid in your esophagus causes a burning sensation. While many people experience reflux from time to time, GERD is defined by reflux occurring weekly. Most people can manage the discomfort of GERD with lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications. But some people with GERD may need stronger medications or surgery to ease symptoms.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Jeffrey Alexander, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, will discuss GERD treatment and prevention. Also on the program, Dr. Matthew Carlson, a Mayo Clinic ear, nose and throat surgeon, will explain vestibular schwannomas, a benign brain tumor that forms on the nerve cells leading from your inner ear to your brain. And Dr. Dawn Davis, a Mayo Clinic dermatologist, will discuss genital skin diseases in men.

And what other steps should you take to keep your loved ones safe, not only on the road but also in their homes?

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Ericka Tung, a Mayo Clinic internist and geriatrician, will discuss safety for older adults.
