Oprah & Friends host Dr. Mehmet Oz talks with filmmaker Andy Abrahams Wilson and reporter Kathy Fowler about Lyme disease. It's important that Oprah's Dr Oz has covered Lyme disease for this huge national audience. You can have an impact by listening to the web site presentation and then commenting. I'm sure that if we can provide a flood of comments it will remain high on the list and might bring more information to Oprah and Friends about the seriousness of Lyme disease and the problems patients have getting proper treatment.
It is a disease transmitted to humans through the bite of a tiny infected tick, but the complications Lyme disease can have on a person's health are no small thing. Dr. Oz talks with medical reporter Kathy Fowler and documentary filmmaker Andy Abrahams Wilson about their efforts to shed light on the untold story of Lyme disease.
Andy talks about his documentary Under Our Skin, which chronicles the battles many patients with Lyme disease face, when misdiagnosed and told by doctors that their symptoms, including chronic pain, are imagined. Plus, Kathy reveals that while investigating Lyme disease as a reporter, she discovered she too is suffering from the disease and is trying to receive treatment often not covered by health insurance.
