Doctors Name Treatments that Bring Little or No Benefit

As I was writing my last article on tackling the common flu, I chanced upon this piece of news from BBC resonating the same message.

As consumers, we indeed need to be wise in our choices. In tackling any challenges in life, we need to first stop and think. What is the root cause, which are the symptoms. Only by eliminating the root issue, can we be free from the symptoms as well.

Framework for Deciding on Treatments

This article gives five key questions we can ask while seeking any treatments. I will highlight them as we go along.

The five questions laid out are as follows:

  1. Do I really need this test, treatment or procedure?
  2. What are the risks and downsides?
  3. What are the possible side-effects?
  4. Are there simpler, safer options?
  5. What will happen if I do nothing?

Of course, these questions are meant to be asked when we are already faced with an illness and seeking treatments for it.

We have Better Options in Life

In life, we always have better options. So than, why do we wait for onset of illness and diseases before we do anything? Prevention of diseases is definitely better than cure. It is often cheaper as well.
