Fighting sarcoidosis as well as other rare diseases.

Episode 29 Susie Torres fights for diagnosis as she battles Sarc and other illnessess. And - I explore the anti-inflammatory Elimination Diet

March 1, 2021

In Episode 29 of the Sarc Fighter podcast, Susie Torres tells the story of how hard it was to determine what was wrong with her.  Doctors mistook her illness for many other problems -- once even sending her to a psychiatric hospital.














Note:  I first met and interviewed Susie in early 2020 -- pre-pandemic.  Susie writes that since we did the interview she has had gastric bypass surgery and lost 100 lbs!  She also writes that her sarcoidosis is in remission, but she is still battling another rare disease -- possibly Sjogren’s Syndrome (SHOW-grins), which is is a disorder of your immune system identified by its two most common symptoms — dry eyes and a dry mouth. The condition often accompanies other immune system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
