my health problems of my 20 years here are really too typical,of my age of 83 now, but my doctors have failed me consistently , with the internet as my protector. so what good is my record going to do me. for example, constipation and nocturia and low thyroid; no one asked , “do you use salt?’ I hadn’t been, re cardiac popular wisdom; so I was missing sodium to produce valpressin, draining my body of liquid; and missing the iodine in iodized table salt for thyroid. 20 years of wortless ‘medical records’ I have yet to meet a competent doctor, Oh yes biggy: long after a year on wellbutrin, learned of the danger of anticholinergics to seniors, My friend the net.
