Mayo Clinic Talks: Nutrition History Taking: A Practical Approach

Available until February 1, 2026

Nutrition is so important to our health. What and how much we eat can help keep us healthy or increase our risk of developing a number of health problems including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, malignancy or a variety of degenerative health conditions. Unfortunately, many of our patients obtain their information regarding nutrition from the media which is often very inaccurate. It’s our responsibility as primary care providers to assess our patients’ nutritional status and give them accurate recommendations regarding dietary changes they should make in order to remain healthy. This starts with a nutritional history. Yet very few of us have had any formal education in nutrition. How do we take a nutritional history? What are the important questions to ask? We’ll discuss this and other nutritional issues with our guest for this podcast, Tara Schmidt, M.Ed, RDN, LD, a registered dietician at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Multiple Sclerosis: A Primary Care Perspective

Available until February 1, 2026

Nearly 1 million individuals in the U.S. have multiple sclerosis. Most acquire the disease between the ages of 20 and 50. It’s often difficult to establish a diagnosis as the symptoms can be vague and often vary significantly from one individual to another. The disease can be very frightening, often debilitating, and progressive; up until recently, we’ve had very little to offer patients in the way of treatment. However, in the past few years there have been numerous advances in treatment options which have given hope to the many patients with MS. We’ll be discussing multiple sclerosis in this podcast. Our guest is Eoin Flanagan, M.B., B.Ch., a neurologist from the Department of Neurology at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Management of Patients with Late-Stage Dementia: A Caring Hand

Available until February 1, 2026

Dementia is a devastating health condition for patients, their families, and a challenging disease for primary care providers. Whereas the diagnosis is usually straightforward to establish, the pharmacologic treatment options have been, at best, disappointing. With little to nothing to offer our patients which would improve their cognitive status; our responsibility for their management doesn’t end there. We still have a responsibility to provide ongoing care to these patients as well as their caregivers as they progress into the later stages of dementia. This brings up numerous management challenges including maintaining our patient’s independence, as well as numerous safety and nutrition issues. This podcast will review the management of the patient with later stage dementia with our guest is Mairead M. Bartley, M.B., B.Ch., B.A.O., a geriatrician and internist in the Division of Community Medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Liver Transplant Selection Criteria

Available until February 1, 2026

The liver is the second most commonly transplanted organ; nearly 10,000 patients received a liver transplant in 2021. The major factor, which has limited the transplants performed, has been the availability of the donated organs and some patients have waited several years before an acceptable organ becomes available. Transplants can be performed for a variety of end-stage liver diseases, usually giving patients years of additional life. Who’s a candidate for a liver transplant and what criteria for selection are required? Our topic for this podcast is “Liver Transplant Selection Criteria” and we’ll discuss this topic with our guest, Michael D. Leise, M.D., from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: LGBTQIA+ Health for Primary Care

Available until February 1, 2026

Individuals who belong to the LGBTQIA+ population are a part of the communities we provide care. Every member of this group is unique, and recognizing how sexual orientation and gender identity influences each person, including how these concepts may evolve and change over a life span, can help us provide more inclusive and whole person care. Many members of the LGBTQIA+ population either do not have access to, or do not seek quality medical care due to stigma and discrimination, which then leads to many disparities. By learning how to provide culturally sensitive care, we can help reduce healthcare disparities for LGBTQIA+ folks. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the LGBTQIA+ community, some of the disparities the community faces, and learn about some special considerations that may arise in your care of the LGBTQIA+ patient.

Mayo Clinic Talks: HIV & Attitudes Towards PrEP

Available until February 1, 2026

As primary care providers, evaluating patients with a virus is a common part of our practice. This ranges from colds, a painful shingles outbreak, COVID-19, RSV bronchiolitis, influenza, and many more. Oftentimes, after a detailed physical exam, we tell our patients the cause of their symptoms are due to a virus and that their symptoms should improve in a couple days to weeks. However, we know that sometimes the symptoms of a viral infection can be a harbinger of more severe disease. In today’s talk, we will be discussing a virus. Acute infection with this virus can present with fever, fatigue, myalgias, arthralgias, lymphadenopathy, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, weight loss, and rash. This constellation of symptoms, especially when they persist for a prolonged duration of time can be representative of an acute HIV infection. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the pathophysiology of HIV, how a patient can contract HIV, the tests to perform when an acute HIV infection is suspected, how to prevent an HIV infection, and also to learn a bit more about anal Pap smears.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Healthcare Professional Burnout: Contributors, Consequences and Solutions

Available until February 1, 2026

The practice of medicine is often stressful and at times, even frustrating. Sometimes the stress and frustration can get out of hand and lead us to feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. This has been described as burnout. There’s good evidence to suggest that well over half of all physicians practicing in the U.S. have exhibited some symptoms of burnout at some time during their career. Healthcare professional burnout not only has negative consequences for the clinician, but also for patients, as patient care can often suffer. What are the symptoms of burnout, can we prevent them and how can we manage those who are experiencing professional burnout? We’ll discuss these questions and more with Colin P. West, M.D., Ph.D., an internist in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Functional Dyspepsia: BOOM! BANG! Burning & Pain!

Available until February 1, 2026

Functional dyspepsia, also known as non-ulcer dyspepsia, represents chronic upper GI symptoms of indigestion and not infrequently abdominal discomfort. Diagnosing functional dyspepsia can be challenging since there are no definitive diagnostic tests. This often results in patients seeking multiple medical opinions searching for a specific cause and treatment for their symptoms. What are the common presenting symptoms of functional dyspepsia? What’s an appropriate evaluation and how do we treat our patients who have it? In this podcast, we’ll discuss these questions and more with David J. Cangemi, M.D., a gastroenterologist from the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Determining the Source of GI Blood Loss

Available until February 1, 2026

Determining the source of GI blood loss can be a challenging dilemma. On occasion, we have clues regarding where we should start looking, but in some cases, no such clues exist. It’s best to use a stepwise approach to determining the source and in most cases, this will give us the answer we need. When a cause is found, most tend to be from an upper GI source rather than the colon. Whereas an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy will determine the source in the majority, in some cases, more aggressive techniques are required. In this podcast, we’ll be discussing GI blood loss, and which approach we should use to determine the source. Our guest is Andrew C. Storm, M.D., a gastroenterologist from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity: "No Loafing Matter"

Available until February 1, 2026

It’s estimated that less than 1/3 of individuals with celiac disease have been properly diagnosed. When those with celiac disease ingest gluten, an immune response develops which attacks the small intestine leading to inadequate absorption of nutrients. If left untreated, celiac disease can lead to a variety of nutritional deficiencies as well as other serious consequences. Those with celiac disease are also at increased risk for coronary disease and small bowel cancers. In this podcast we’ll review celiac disease and gluten sensitivity with our guest, Amy S. Oxentenko, M.D., a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic. We’ll discuss the symptoms of celiac disease, how to diagnose the condition and how patients with celiac disease should be managed.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Benign Scrotal Masses & Testicular Cancer Screening

Available until February 1, 2026

Testicular cancer accounts for only around 1% of all cancers in men and is most common in males from age 15 to 35. Around 10,000 new cases are diagnosed per year resulting in about 400 deaths. While testicular cancer is relatively uncommon, other abnormalities occur in the scrotum which are quite common and fortunately, relatively benign. Most of these conditions present as a scrotal mass and can be quite frightening to the patient if they discover them. In today’s podcast, we’ll discuss scrotal masses including testicular cancer with our guest, Bradley C. Liebovich, M.D., from the Department of Urology at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Alopecia: Handling Our Patients with Hair Loss

Available until February 1, 2026

Hair loss is quite common and although it occurs more commonly in men, it can also occur in women. It’s estimated that up to 80% of men and nearly 50% of women experience hair loss. While it’s not a life-or-death health issue, it can have a negative effect on confidence and self-esteem and a significant amount of money is spent on hair regrowth products and restoration procedures. Did you know that about 95% of our total skin area is covered in hair and you can lose up to 50% of your hair before it’s noticeable to others? How does hair loss differ in males and females? Why do some men go bald? And how effective is the pharmacologic treatment that’s available in producing hair regrowth? We’ll discuss these questions and more with our guest, Jason C. Sluzevich, M.D., a dermatologist at the Mayo Clinic. The topic for this podcast is “Handling Our Patients with Hair Loss”.
