Updates on Vitamin D Supplementation, Emerging Diets, Exercise, and PPI Use in Patients with COVID-19
Episode 2: Coffee with Chopra
In this episode of Coffee with Chopra, Dr. Sanjiv Chopra will interview family practitioner, Dr. Frank Domino. They will discuss the latest data on vitamin D supplementation, the importance of exercise and how to motivate patients to exercise, new and emerging diets and how these diets can impact patients with certain health issues including diabetes and NAFLD, and new data around proton pump inhibitor (PPI) use and COVID-19. As Hippocrates said, “Let thy food be thy medicine.”
This presentation will provide an overview of the scientific evidence supporting the utility of exercise in maintaining health and decreasing the risk of chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, cancer, coronary heart disease, depression. In addition, we will review the evidence showing that exercise can mitigate the risk incurred by diseases like diabetes and hypertension. Then we will discuss a practical approach for discussing exercise with patients/clients and helping patients achieve successful outcomes with lifestyle modification.
Nutritional needs change as we age. With aging comes muscle loss and anabolic resistance. Maintaining muscle is associated with a multitude of health benefits including better cognitive function, bone health and blood sugar control yet most adults 50 and older have no idea what nutritional patterns they can employ to maintain muscle as well as which specific nutrients and foods to include in their diets to support health and well-being as they age.
This podcast will provide an update on the medical literature and practice guidelines pertaining to exercise. Participants will deepen their understanding of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise and will examine the evidence for a variety of common approaches to exercise (cardiovascular, strength training, high intensity interval training). Barriers to participation in exercise regimens – both for patients and providers – will be explored.
