Importance of Correct Diagnosis

Lately the newspapers seem to keep springing surprising news on citizens. Seventy year olds can now compete in marathons and even some octogenarians have been known to conquer the Everest, as unbelievable as that sounds. You would think that increasing pollution and global warming would contribute to a rise in the number of unfit humans but medicine has been able to tackle a range of issues and been a profound help to the human race. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that life as it is in the 21st century would not have been possible without the advancements made in the medical field.

Look around you and you will find that diseases abound and are ready to strike at the slightest provocation. A hectic lifestyle coupled with poor eating habits, improper sanitation and neglect can really pose severe health consequences and lead to a shortened life span. And yet we have examples all around us that humans are succeeding in living longer than ever before.

As beneficial as it is, sometimes medicine can be perilous and deadly as well. And most of the time, it is due to a simple diagnosis gone wrong. It is true that the symptoms of many medical conditions are similar and there are bound to be some error in judgement. But accurate interpretation of test results can prevent this from happening and lead to correct diagnosis, treatment and healthy recovery. It is scary to think of all the avoidable deaths that have been attributed to an incorrect diagnosis. To prevent being part of such statistics, one must always take care to choose a good, reputed clinic or hospital while seeing medical help.
