Mayo Clinic Radio: Crohn’s disease / pituitary gland / infant sleep recommendations
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health estimate that more than half a million people in the U.S. have Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease that most often begins gradually but can worsen over time. Symptoms can include diarrhea, abdominal pain and weight loss. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, learn about treating Crohn’s disease from Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist Dr. Edward Loftus Jr. Also on the program, endocrinologist Dr. William Young Jr. will explain why the pituitary gland is known as the “master gland," and pediatrician Dr. Esther Krych will share the latest infant sleep recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Listen to the program on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 9:05 a.m. CST.
