(1888PressRelease) Dr. Diana Driscoll, President of Genetic Disease Investigators, LLC., inconjunction with Total Eye Care, is beginning FREE pre-clinical trials in search of a cure for"Invisible Illnesses". These may include Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Ehlers- Danlos syndrome with Dysautonomia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Endometriosis, and Chronic Lyme Disease.
Dallas, TX - Total Eye Care and Genetic Disease Investigators, LLC are pleased to announcetheir dedication to discovering a cure for "invisible illnesses" by offering free pre-clinical trialtesting to patients affected by these diseases. Invisible illnesses can best be described asillnesses that yield very valid symptoms, yet have often been misunderstood and misdiagnosedby the medical community at large.
