    Here's the show description:

    "It's Not Chronic Fatigue: The New Disease Causing Your Exhaustion" - A disease that has been mistaken for chronic fatigue...


    Not sure what this is going to be about -- SEID or something else...?

    That guy is a hack. Don't understand how his show is still on the air.

    So much of what Oz says has been shown to be wrong (there was a recent analysis showing that). It may do more harm than good for people's opinions.
    But, if there are good scientists on the show, perhaps I'm wrong.

    I guess it's time to change your name to PeterNegative if you want to keep the girly diagnosis? :rofl:

    IIRC, Dr. Oz once suggested that green tea was a suitable treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome.

    I think that the suggestion of five questions women should ask themselves is pure marketing: Dr. Oz's audience is mostly female. It's a moronic hard sell, but that's how his show gets ratings.

    I don't know what this show will actually be like, but amidst all the bull and endorsement of miracle cures, Dr. Oz occasionally includes some actual health and medicine. So I hope that he allows Dr. Lipkin to inject a bit of sanity. Mehmet C. Oz is associated with Columbia University, and I imagine that's how he snagged Lipkin's involvement in the first place.

    Well, it's a chance for Dr Lipkin to get some airtime on a major TV show about our disease so that's got to be good. Can people phone in? If so, I hope someone would phone in and tell people to donate to medical research on this!

    @waiting - would you be happy for the thread to be retitled, 'Dr Lipkin on Dr Oz show Thurs 5 March about ME/CFS'?

    @Kina, could this be done if @waiting is happy? I think a lot of people would be interested in Dr Lipkin appearing.

    The percentage of affected men isn't that low.

    For the Canadians here, it's on CTV at 2:00 in the afternoon. I tried googling when it airs in the U.S., but can't find a site that gives a time. Maybe it airs at different times according to the local affiliate that buys it.

    This appearance by Lipkin just makes me wish that Sanjay Gupta of CNN would get ahold of him. Gupta did terrific work on medical marijuana, even to the point of apologizing to patients for having bought into government lies about the issue.

    Dr. Oz airs in the US on ABC. It is 4 p.m. Mountain Time but it may vary when they show it in other time zones. This is interesting in another way as the very worst TV segment on the IOM was shown on my local ABC affiliate. The affiliate, ABC News and its owner Hearst TV were all thoroughly bashed by advocates. The clip was quickly removed from the web but our requests/demands for a retraction and equal air-time have not been responded to.

    I'd hope (guess?) that ABC is aware of their previous debacle when putting together this segment of Dr. Oz? I guess we'll find out tomorrow!

    I don't know, but Dr. Mark Hyman has his own doc-media thing going. He also had some version of "CFS."

    This is how much I don't know. Who is Dr. Mark Hyman? And...@Kati- do you not like him? Many people have suggested I go to a functional medicine doctor. Again, another thing I don't want to do.

    May Hyman looks scary. If they concentrate on him and only allow Dr Lipkin a short time to explain his side then it could be just as an "authority" to let the rest of them hang crazy ideas off.

    I think Dr Lipkin might only have a short appearance on the show.
