Tip of the Day
Honesty is Always the Best Policy!
You can lie to your friends, you can lie to your boss, you can even lie to us, just don’t lie to your doctor. Flawed information can lead to a flawed diagnoses and treatments, imperiling your health – and your life.
To avoid “garbage in, garbage out” be honest (no half-truths or embellishing) about what medications you are taking and how often you take them, what you eat, how much you smoke and/or drink, etc.
Your doctor is not going to judge you, and chances are s/he has seen and heard a lot worse.
