Clinical Pearls

In this episode:

  • The post bariatric patient is in the midst of a life-changing experience, the kind of support they receive makes a big difference to the long term outcomes
  • Post bariatric surgery, the patient is effectively in a chronic mal-absorptive state. Protein intake, Vitamin B12, iron, calcium are particularly impacted
  • OTC multivitamins are NOT sufficient to meet the needs of these patients, most GPs are unaware of how to supplement and monitor effectively
Guest: Melanie McGrice, Fertility and Prenatal Dietitian; Founder of Nutrition Plus

Host: Dr David Lim, GP | Total time: 35 mins

New Vaccines, New Concerns

In this episode:

  • Instead of efficacy, look at the secondary endpoints as vaccine data is being released
  • Whilst the evidence for giving the AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine in patients over 65 yrs is small, it is still a reasonable option
  • TGA is maintaining a very watchful eye on all new vaccines 
  • It is possible Australia will have 5 different vaccines available by the end of 2021 
Guest: Dr Gary Grohmann, Virologist; Vaccine Manufacturing Expert; Former Director of Immunobiology and WHO ERL at the TGA, Office of Laboratories and Scientific Services

Host: Dr David Lim, GP | Total time: 27 mins
