Episode 357: Riboflavin for migraine prophylaxis: Something “2-B” excited about?

In episode 357. Mike and James invite Adrienne to help us work through all the studies that have looked at using riboflavin to prevent migraines. Unfortunately, the impact of riboflavin on migraines is consistently inconsistent and most RCTs found no reduction in migraine frequency. At least we have evidence for low-dose propranolol and amitriptyline.

Riboflavin for Migraine Prophylaxis: Something “2-B” excited about?

Episode 356: PREMIUM – TSH, IBS and more three-letter brilliance

In episode 356, Mike and James welcome Jamal Ramji to the podcast because we really needed to do something PREMIUM. We discuss a study of subclinical hypothyroidism and a low FODMAP diet for IBS. At the end we figure out that TSH is a no, but that the low FODMAP is a yes at least for 1 in 5-10 people.
