Out of the blue and for no apparent reason, multiple sclerosis strikes young men and women in the prime of their life. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio (9/14), Orhun Kantarci, M.D., will join us to discuss the road to diagnosis and how they live with this disease. What is MS? What are the symptoms? Is there a genetic marker for MS? How close are we to a cure?
Also, hear from Twin Cities Public Television reporter Mary Lahammer, who recently revealed to the public that she is living with MS. She's a patient of Dr. Kantarci and will be calling in to join the conversation. Read more about Mary's story.
Note: You can hear the program LIVE Saturdays at 9 am CT on I Heart Radio via KROC AM. The show is taped for rebroadcast by some affiliates. On Twitter follow #MayoClinicRadio and tweet your questions.
