The internet can be as harmful as it is useful.
There is a lot of conflicting information and recommendations online when it comes to health, and while it’s tempting to look up potential causes of certain symptoms you’re experiencing – this can often do more harm than good.
Why speaking to a healthcare professional is key
While certain platforms can be helpful to further your learning on particular topics in health, it’s always a sensible approach to visit a healthcare professional if ever you’re concerned about your health. The truth is, the internet has no understanding of your clinical history or health status whereas your doctor does.
This is why at TRTED, we strongly encourage everyone who has concerns about their health to visit their doctor or healthcare professional to receive a professional diagnosis.
