Wednesday House Call, October 2, 2019: What lives in your ear canal.
Dr Barry Dworkin joins Rob Snow to discuss the latest health stories of the week. Rob talks about changes to OHIP coverage with the elimination of coverage for non-evidenced-based medical procedures including the routine removal of ear wax. Rob wanted to know what I have seen pulled out of the ear canal.
Drug shortages are becoming increasingly harmful for patients.
Your calls about:
- Testing protocols for Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, a degenerative neurological disease.
- Any relationship to a child having had whooping cough and developing autism and ADHD?
- Daily glucose level blood testing is not necessary for type 2 diabetics who are not on insulin. Outcomes are no different compared to those who do not test.
