Mayo Clinic Radio: Cyberchondria

By McCray

Have you ever used the internet to research a medical symptom you might be experiencing?  On Saturday, April 26, at 9 a.m. CT, we'll discuss a condition called cyberchondria. Richard Seime, Ph.D., will be on the program to talk about the use of the internet for medical information. Of course we know the best internet site for accurate medical information is our own MayoClinic.org ... but there is so much information in cyberspace, when does it become a problem?  How many people are using the internet to self-diagnose or self-treat?  When is the internet helpful and when is it unhealthy? Join us!

Myth or Matter of Fact:  Cyberchondria is another name for hypochondria.

Suicide Prevention (rebroadcast)

By Dana Sparks

The next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Saturday, April 5, 9 a.m. CDT, is a rebroadcast from October 2013.

Timothy Lineberry, M.D., and J. Michael Bostwick, M.D., joined us to discuss suicide prevention.  There are an estimated one million suicides worldwide each year but there is hope that number can drop if we understand the scope of the problem and how to find help.  What should you do if someone you know is at risk? How can you help teenagers if they are suicidal?  We also talked about resources for loved ones who are left behind after suicide and discussed the drastic increase in the number of military members who are dying from suicide. Please tune in.

Myth or Matter of Fact:  Most suicide attempts fail.
