failure to diagnose / misdiagnosis Archives

The misdiagnosis of Type I diabetes can be fatal for patients

Diabetes is a common condition in the United States. A combination of genetics, fairly sedentary lifestyles and easy access to rich foods with high carbohydrate and sugar contents makes it an easy condition to acquire -- especially as people age.

Asthma: A common diagnosis that just may be wrong

Asthma is a terribly difficult disease to manage, and statistics indicate that it's on the rise, particularly among children and adults of color. However, what if many of those people who are diagnosed and treated for asthma actually have a different disease instead?

Could your doctor be missing the warning signs of a stroke?

If you're elderly and have seizures or care for an elderly parent or other relative who does, could your doctor be ignoring the early-warning signals of a stroke? A new study suggests that cerebrovascular disease may go undiagnosed in older patients who have epilepsy -- and it's already known that epilepsy is often misdiagnosed in the elderly.

Misdiagnosis can lead to considerable patient harm

Receiving an incorrect diagnosis can be as devastating as not even seeking medical care. In some cases, a misdiagnosis is even worse because you might get treatment for the wrong thing. That treatment might make the condition you are really suffering from even worse. We know that you don't want to have to deal with issues because a doctor didn't diagnose you properly.
