Wednesday House Call,  June 20, 2018

Dr Barry Dworkin joins Rob Snow to discuss the latest health stories of the week.

Today: Ticks in Ottawa. The resource burden on family physicians’ offices to report vaccination records to public health is delayed by new Ontario government. Infrastructure was not ready.

Your calls about:

  • Using antiviral tablets instead of ointment to treat cold sores
  • Approach to evaluating thyroid nodules
  • What happened to the Lyme disease vaccine?
  • Bloating and discomfort. Caller asks if his diabetes medications are the reason. They are not but likely his diet is a factor.
