‘Ask Yale Medicine’ covers topics from heart disease to back pain.
(June 2012) The Yale Medical Group website is now posting a blog called “Ask Yale Medicine,” a question and answer column about your health.
This blog is your opportunity to ask questions of the practicing physicians of the Yale School of Medicine. It was developed to help bring the latest research and trends in clinical care to the public’s attention.
It covers a wide range of topics, from what causes lower back pain to whether people with particular blood types are susceptible to infectious diseases such as malaria. Experts give advice on such topics as how to spot early signs of heart disease and whether to supplement Vitamin D.
While it is no substitute for a professional diagnosis, and people must always consult with their personal physicians to make decisions about their course of treatment, the information provided here may help you make more informed choices.
Answers to questions will be posted on the “Ask Yale Medicine site,” not sent via e-mail. Please understand that physicians cannot answer every question submitted. Also, nothing contained in either the questions or answers should be considered private, personal or confidential, and are not subject to any laws concerning privacy.
