Fad Diets

It’s estimated that approximately 70% of Americans are either overweight or obese. Obesity in the United States is a major health issue, resulting in an increased risk of coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. It also carries significant economic costs. As a result, the diet industry is booming. It’s thought that the weight loss industry has over $20 billion in annual revenue. Some diets are legitimate, while others are not only ineffective but may be dangerous to one’s health. To help us sort out diets and weight loss, we’re joined by nutrition expert Dr. Donald Hensrud, a Mayo Clinic physician in Preventative Medicine.

Transgender Patient Care

Transgender is a term for individuals whose gender identity or behavior does not conform to that associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth. It’s difficult to estimate the number of transgender individuals, primarily because there are no population studies that accurately account for the range of gender identity and gender expression. What common health risks do transgender patients face? How does healthcare screening and preventive strategies differ in transgender patients who have been on hormonal therapy? Today we’re joined by Dr. Caroline Davidge-Pitts, an Endocrinologist and a core member of the Transgender and Intersex Specialty Care group at Mayo Clinic. For more information, join us in Washington D.C., Oct 4 – 6 at the Principles in the Care of Transgender and Intersex Patients 2018 Conference.

Approaches for Diagnosis and Treatment of Depression

Guest: Bruce Sutor, M.D.Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)Depression is a common disorder seen in primary care practice. The majority of patients with depression are evaluated and treated not by psychiatrists, but by primary care providers, and it’s been shown that we correctly diagnose depression only about half of the time. Despite the fact that we have some very good treatment options for depression, those on treatment often have continued symptoms. Dr. Sutor is a Mayo Clinic Psychiatrist and Practice Chair of Psychiatry and Psychology in Rochester, Minnesota. Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at https://ce.mayo.edu/ or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.
