December 7, 2020

Dr. Taufiq Ahmad lives a quiet life in the UK.  But slowly he felt that normal activities were wearing him out. 


In Episode 23 of the Sarc Fighter podcast, Dr. Ahmad tells the story of how he went from active cyclist, recreational soccer player and general outdoors enthusiast, to a man who spends a lot of time on couch.  Even though he is a physician -- Sarcoidosis was not one of the causes on his radar.

Ultimately, however it was determined that #sarcoidosis had badly damaged his heart.
