About the show

Top tips for healthy living

Trust Me, I’m a Doctor tackles the top questions about our health, offering uncomplicated, trustworthy advice on important medical issues and worrying health concerns.

By experimenting on their own bodies and visiting the world’s leading research hospitals, this team of doctors gathers the evidence to provide answers to the medical questions we face every day.

This series the team finds out how sunshine exposure and a diet of oily fish affects the vitamin D levels of a group of office workers. The team investigates three so-called superfoods – garlic, beetroot and watermelon. Do they really lower blood pressure? Caffeine is part of most people’s working days, but does caffeine really make you more alert? The team finds out and asks what are the alternatives?

Elsewhere the series asks if sugar is as toxic as tobacco, finds out if we can cheat our way to a healthy diet, and investigates the growing trend for – and risks associated with – electronic cigarettes.
