Reminder about on-line diagnosis

Postby canalon » Fri Nov 18, 2005 8:36 pm

Just a quick note about some of the topic in this forum.
You can ask questions about diseases, and even describe what you are struggling with, but be warned that there is no way to confirm that the people answering you know what they are talking about (even if they do). So anything that could be said on this forum, any advice, should be taken carefully. And before taking any action, go consult a qualified health professional.


Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without
any proof. (Ashley Montague)

Definetly a good point. Diagnoses over the internet are difficult at best. And no one here, I believe, is a health professional that performs diagnoses. We don't mind helping you find a general direction to go in, but if you have a serious medical problem...see a real doctor ;)

Well it seems they are working to release a program that can diagnose a patient in the absence of a doctor and by accident I think about an year ago I found a site going in that direction but being stil far . Truth is no1 can replace a doctor and the ability to release a diferential dignose on the basis of every simpton u present because most of the times one leads to one diagnose and another one to a complete different one and that is why is important to see a specialist although not quite every time u happen to sneeze .

Yeah...that´s somehow natural isn´t it ? Have a look at Wikipedia. They´ve got the same declaration there.

Definetly. Even I found telemedicine with a professional one some times, make wrong decision. Over the net we can know about the diseases, diagnosis is very risky.
Thank You

it is not a thread for discussion, it is was started as a warning from the mods of the forum to our users.

what we are trying to do in such forums , is to increase our medical informations more and more ..
Of course there's no chance to diagnose a disease through internet (( except if we have two cameras and begin to examine the patient carefully ^.^ ))

with all my love
Nice topic here , for a nice idea
(( in German means : yours ;) ))
This life is going crazy , we love people but at the end we can't keep them near us , Ohhhhhhhhhh people , Life is bad :(
