Do you know that over 30% of misdiagnoses result in serious injury or death and the reason for some of these are patients’ wrongdoing?
Because of this we have to avoid wrong things when going to the doctor, it’s important to remember that the quality of the examination depends not only on the professional but also on your hand as well.
In here lets discuss and list of tips that can help you to avoid diagnostic inaccuracies and stay healthy always.
1. Have to avoid mani-pedicare before visiting the dermatologist.
Dermatologists had to treat more than 3,000 diseases for a one long period of time.
The doctor should examine not only your skin but also your nails by doing a full scale of examination.
Actually many fungal infections are usually located there. In this case it’s very important to a doctor to see the natural state of your nails.
If you do meni or pedicure before the examination they are unable to guess the real reason of the symptoms.
To my mind any changes in the nails may indicate diseases of other organs, so try to give them enough attention.
2. Stop drinking alcohol before a cholesterol test.
Anybody knows that beer and spirits are cholesterol-free, not only that they also contain a lot of sugar as well as substances called carbohydrates.
which can cause a sharp jump of cholesterol in the body.
If you drink alcohol before visiting to the doctor may your cholesterol level will return to normal, but the your doctor may receive incorrect results.
3. Don’t drink too much water before a urine test.
Human urine is 99% water and only 1% acid, ammonia, hormones, dead blood cells, protein, and other substances that are used for research.
According to studies the concentration is very low. So if you provide 100 ml of urine, approximately 1 ml of it is suitable for analysis.
In this case drinking to much more water a few hours before the test to make sure you produce enough urine.
4. Stop using deodorant before a mammogram.
The studies show that the use of deodorant before a mammogram is related to its composition since it contains small metallic substances.
During the procedure, it’s easy to mistake these metals for calcifications, which is a sign of cancer developing.
The results will not only be wrong, but they’ll make you pretty nervous and what the use of getting faults results?
5. Don’t eat red food before getting a colonoscopy.
Do you know that the natural red food can color your colon and affect the outcome of the examination?
Among the products you should discard at least one week before your colonoscopy are beets, cranberries, red candy, red frosting, red licorice, tomatoes, and tomato sauce.
Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that products of a different color can be consumed before going to the doctor.
The day before the medical procedure, you should eat only clear, liquid foods.
6. Skip eating salty meal before having a blood pressure test.
According to the American Heart Association they recommends consuming no more than 2,300 milligrams of salt per day.
There are any other harmful effects, just like it contributes to a rise in blood pressure.
Therefore, before the test, you shouldn’t eat fast food, nuts, beans, or other products that contain a lot of salt.Otherwise, the results can be falsely high.
7. Avoid taking medicine before having a blood test.
Keep in mind that few days before the blood test, you should refuse to take drugs so that your blood has time to cleanse and isn’t influenced by any outside factors if you need to get more and more accurate result.
As for pills prescribed to you for mandatory daily use, doctors usually say not to take them in the morning before giving blood and to then take them right after the test.
But in each particular case, it’s better to discuss this issue in advance with the specialist.
8. Don’t change your daily schedule.
Human body is a more stable system that requires a certain amount of time to adapt to new regimens.
Just like travelers use the universal rule that flying just one time zone over will require about 2 days of recovery.
It turns out that when you go to bed an hour later than usual, your body is already experiencing stress, which affects its general condition and different body indices.
The same applies to other natural processes such as nutrition, water consumption, and stress levels.
