Your Health

On YOUR HEALTH Show #21 the field piece deals with adult autism. There are some disorders we associate only with children: autism is one of them. But what's the future for an autistic child? Who better to answer that than an autistic adult? After all, kids with autism grow up too. The studio discussion is about osteoporosis in men. A recent landmark Canadian study confirmed that men are as likely to get this bone disease as women. Maureen's studio guests are David Kirk who discovered he had osteoporosis when he fell off a ladder and broke two vertebrae in his spine, and Dr. Rick Adachi, a rheumatologist and the study's lead author. Dr. Paul Caldwell explains about ' blood-letting' and taking blood samples.
