Diagnosis, which is based on the New York Times Magazine column by Dr Lisa Sanders, follows the lives of seven patients as they attempt to get to the bottom of their rare and uncommon ailments.

On the show, the Yale University School of Medicine clinician chats to the people with mysterious, sometimes life-threatening illnesses and puts their symptoms out to a massive audience in the hopes of finding a diagnosis.

The emotional series connects patients with other people - other doctors, researchers and people who have dealt with similar issues - around the world, who recognise symptoms that may seem rarer than they are in response to Dr Saunders call.

Once equipped with the insight they've been searching for, viewers see what the patients opt to do with that information.

The seven-part series introduces patients facing serious, debilitating health issues, including brain inflammation, frequent seizures and sudden paralysis.

As they attempt to put the pieces of the puzzle together, viewers are given an insight into the complexities of modern medical science as well as the flawed US healthcare system.

Diagnosis is the first reality medical mystery series on the streaming service and landed in full earlier this mont

The first episode follows Angel, a woman from Las Vegas who has lived with chronic pain for almost a decade.

Having failed to be diagnosed by doctors in the US, Angel turns to Dr Sanders for the help she needs as medical bills continue to cripple her.

Angel eventually ends up travelling to Turin, Italy after Dr Sanders puts out the call for help and meets a group of specialists, who run tests to give her a diagnosis she has been searching for nearly.
