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: Post Transplant Kidney Care for Local Physicians

Available until February 1, 2026

Kidney transplants are quite common; over 20,000 transplants will have been performed by the end of 2022 and there are currently just under 90,000 individuals on the national transplant waiting list. They’ve been remarkably successful in giving patients with renal failure an improved quality of life. However, patients who have had kidney transplants have unique medical needs. Since most transplant patients will return to their primary care providers for the majority of their ongoing care, what important information do we need to successfully care for these patients? What unique medical needs do they have? And what potential health problems are more commonly seen in transplant patients? In this podcast, our guest, Samy M. Riad, M.D., a nephrologist at the Mayo Clinic will answer these questions and more as we discuss the management of the post-renal transplant patient.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Pulmonary Function Testing

Available until February 1, 2026

Pulmonary function tests are extremely useful in both diagnosing and managing patients with respiratory disease. In addition to a medical history, physical exam and imaging studies, they give us a great deal of information of the pulmonary physiology and help us understand why patients have various respiratory symptoms. However, there are quite a number of pulmonary function tests available to us and which tests we should order can be confusing. Do we know when spirometry, lung volumes or diffusion capacity will be useful for evaluating the various pulmonary conditions? Our guest for this podcast is Dr. Alexander Niven, from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Mayo Clinic and he’ll provide answers to these questions and more as we discuss “How to Use Pulmonary Function Tests Effectively”.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Testosterone Supplementation in Men: Risks, Benefits, and Best Practices

Available until February 1, 2026

Testosterone has a variety of health benefits. It helps maintain bone density, muscle mass, red blood cell production and sexual function. Testosterone levels in men tend to peak between age 30 to 40 then gradually decline and it’s not unusual to find low testosterone levels in men over the age of 50. It’s also known that in men with hypogonadism, testosterone supplementation can improve libido, bone density and muscle mass. Should we be checking testosterone levels in our middle-age male patients? How do we determine who should receive testosterone supplementation and finally what are the risks of supplementation? In this podcast, these are all questions I’ll be asking our guest, Dr. Nahid Punjani, a urologist at the Mayo Clinic as we discuss “Testosterone Supplementation in Men”.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Vestibular Schwannomas (aka Acoustic Neuromas)

Available until February 1, 2026

Hearing loss is a commonly seen symptom in a primary care office practice, as is tinnitus and vertigo. Fortunately, they’re almost always due to a benign cause. However, these symptoms may represent something more ominous, an acoustic neuroma, also known as a vestibular schwannoma. It’s important to consider this diagnosis when we see them in our patients, as there is the potential for serious consequences to develop if this remains untreated. What type of hearing loss is associated with a vestibular schwannoma? What are the other associated symptoms? How do we go about evaluating these patients and how are they best treated? I’ll be asking these questions of our guests Michael J. Link, M.D., a neurosurgeon from the Department of Neurologic Surgery and Mathew L. Carlson, M.D., a head and neck surgeon from the Department of Otolaryngology, both at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Our topic for this podcast is vestibular schwannomas.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Year Three of COVID-19: Harsh Truths, Brutal Realities & Glimmers of Hope

Available until February 1, 2026

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, also known as COVID-19, is a novel virus with a rapidly changing genotype. It’s responsible for over a million deaths so far. One of every 300 Americans have died as a result of the virus and infection with COVID-19, and it has been responsible for a reduction in life expectancy in the U.S. for both 2021 and 2022. There are 4 widely available, approved vaccines in the United States, yet an inadequate number of individuals have been immunized and very few are still wearing protective masks. The consequences of this include continued excess morbidity and mortality as well as the development of a variety of new variants of the virus. Our guest for this podcast is Greg A. Poland, M.D., an internist, and the director of vaccine research at the Mayo Clinic. He’s also the lead author of an article published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings in December 2022. The article is entitled “Year 3 of COVID-19: Harsh Truths, Brutal Realities and Glimmers of Hope”. We’ll be discussing some of the key points from this article.
