Access Health: New Lung Treatments, Prescription Savings

162

Treatments for lung disease have remained relatively unchanged over the years, with methods to manage the symptoms being the only relief for patients. However, promising new research is being used to find ways to slow the progression of the disease.

On today’s show, we welcome Dr. James St. Louis from The Lung Institute to discuss how he believes using stem cells can help slow the progress of COPD. He discusses how stem cells work to target the lungs and calm inflammation, which can enhance quality of life for patients. We also sit down with Larry, who has seen a change in his COPD since starting the stem cell therapy treatments. We also welcome pulmonologist Dr. Brian Carlin, who discusses a variety of ways patients can manage their COPD.

Finally, Medical Security Card introduces their WellRx program, which can help consumers save hundreds of dollars on their prescriptions to better manage both their health and their wallet.
