You’ll be Shocked to Know how Often These Conditions are Being Misdiagnosed
There are many health-related articles on the internet which can cause you to conduct a wrong diagnosis of various diseases that are already very difficult to diagnose accurately even by a professional medical practitioner. Here is what you need to know in order to make a correct diagnosis of the medical conditions listed below.
Sensitivity to Gluten
Gluten cannot be the culprit every time you feel something wrong in your body, although many celebrities would disagree. According to recent research, many people who believe they have an intolerance to gluten, either because they are experiencing a bloated stomach, diarrhea, or other gastrointestinal problems, in actuality don’t have gluten sensitivity at all.
In fact, there are very few people who actually have a sensitivity to this wheat-based protein; about 1% of people around the world suffer from celiac disease. More plausible reasons behind your gastrointestinal problems can be IBS, fructose intolerance, lactose intolerance, or maybe even bacteria imbalance in the small intestine.
Allergy From Certain Types Of Food
Many people believe that they have allergies from certain types of food. According to a survey, every 1 in 5 people believes he or she has food allergies, while in reality only one person out of every 10 actually is allergic to certain types of food. The reason why many people misdiagnose themselves this way is that they experience diarrhea or bloating right after having certain types of foods, whereby it may just be due to gastrointestinal issues.
Food allergies cause hives and the sufferer usually experiences a swollen throat or tongue, pain in the chest, or a sensation of discomfort while breathing. The best way to diagnose food allergies the right way is to differentiate between the symptoms of an actual food allergy and other gastrointestinal problems by conducting proper medical tests.
Low Level Of Testosterone
You may experience a decreasing level of testosterone in your body as you age. In fact, according to research, the level of testosterone in your body decreases by 1% every year after 30, and if this level becomes too low, conditions such as low libido, fatigue, mood swings, and weight gain start to manifest.
However, these conditions can also develop as a result of other conditions such as diabetes, depression, or sleep apnea. According to studies, if a person is suffering from other conditions and tries to improve his testosterone levels with medication, his symptoms may become worse instead of improving, and this also increases the risk of developing blood clots and a heart attack. Therefore, instead of rushing towards treatment, make sure your body actually needs it.
Is every one of your headaches a migraine? Definitely not. According to medical practitioners, only 12% of people who complain about splitting headaches have a migraine. A real migraine is not only a pain in the head but is also accompanied by other symptoms which include nausea and sensitivity to sound or light. Also, a migraine becomes worse as it progresses. A person usually gets irritable and feels depressed 2 days before a migraine occurs.
Whether it’s a migraine or a headache of another kind, the best way to differentiate between them is to get a proper evaluation by a medical practitioner. For treatment, it is important to recognize the triggers of your headache (stress, depression, bright light or loud noises) and discuss them with your medical practitioner.
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder
The ADHD is perhaps the most misdiagnosed disorder in children, and sometimes in adults too. ADHD is accompanied by symptoms including hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity. If someone is really suffering from ADHD then, apart from their personal life, this disorder affects their work and personal relationships as well.
A proper diagnosis of this disorder can be made through the proper evaluation of multiple other symptoms associated with it. The most common symptoms include depression, difficulty in concentration, lack of motivation, acute forgetfulness, a low level of self-esteem, issues in the workplace, and mood swings.
These symptoms are often diagnosed in adults too, however, a proper evaluation from a medical practitioner should be made before any treatment is sought.
