I give only advice and encouragement and I take others information the same way..If I need to be diagnose I will go to the doctor..As I hope others will to..None of us are doctors.. I take information from here to discuss with my doctor..because I've learned something new..People know that the internet is a super highway of information and that you must use caution on all aspects of what you read.
If not, they should. Most people understand suggestion are not meant to diagnose a person, but merely to give an opinion. BUT you always have those people who will take it "literally" and go with it. I have seen some pretty bizarre answers on here.
All I ever do is give some advice , if it's something I'm familiar with ! If not , I'll sure tell them to see a regular Doctor and get the truth ! All we can do is try to help with what we know or our opinions ! We're not Doctors and so many people asking medical questions is amazing ! I always refer them to their Doctor ! There are a few on here that are in the medical field and many that say they are but aren't . So , no policy , just advice is all . Nothing replaces what your Doctor says and that's what you pay them for !
