Diabetes By The Numbers: Mary Beth Withers Wyss.

Mary Beth Withers Wyss has been living with Diabetic Macular Edema for some time. She went through a two year clinical trial of an experimental drug designed to treat DME. She talks about her experience, about why clinical trials are perfect for a patient like her, and even why she is still a Cleveland Browns fan (to put the timeline into perspective, this was recorded before the Cincinnati Bengals had lost a game this season, and now they have lost two).

Mary Beth frankly talks about the difficulties of living with DME, and living with the fact that the best treatment available to her involves injections directly into her eyes.

Want to know about Diabetic Macular Edema from someone who’s been there? Want to know about clinical trials designed to find a viable treatment for DME? Then you’ll want to listen to this podcast.
