Dis­ease De­tec­tive

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 7.30pm, Dis­cov­ery Home & Health For four years, John Page, 53, has been in a life-and-death search for an­swers. Page is just one of many pa­tients in the Un­di­ag­nosed Dis­eases Pro­gram, a transna­tional Amer­i­can health ini­tia­tive head­quar­tered in Bethesda, Mary­land. A clin­i­cian tells us that Page was re­ferred to the pro­gram be­cause he pre­sented with a rare con­stel­la­tion of symp­toms. These sug­gested the in­volve­ment of mul­ti­ple sites in his body, in­clud­ing his mus­cles, nerves and, most likely, his brain. It all started with light­head­ed­ness four years ago. Hypochon­dri­acs, be­ware.
