Test results and medical advice

Thank you for joining our online liver community.

This forum is here to share experiences and provide support to each other and we would advise against posting any test results or asking for specific medical advice. This is not a medical forum and should not be used to try and make diagnoses or replace advice from your own medical practitioners who have a much wider view of your health and test results.

Many thanks for your ongoing support and understanding.

  • Just checking, is this an email sent to everybody ?. Just wondering why I have received it.

  • Hi Freddie

    Yes this is just a general post we have made as a gentle reminder to everyone about the purpose of the forum. It was just supposed to show up in the general news feed rather than go to anyone specific.

  • ok thanks

  • Are you referring to any particular posts? It's common that new users post their blood test results and ask for clarification. The replies often come from some really experienced knowledgeable posters with the caveat that they are not professionals, and should clarify with a professional.

  • Exactly. Many people post because they have seen their doctors etc and are still non the wiser as to the meanings of results. I agree as long as the person replying is as rodeo says knowledgeable, and makes it clear that they are only offering an opinion and professional advise should be sought.

  • Hi all,

    It is a rule of the whole of Healthunlocked that medical advice cannot be given out. Please see the link;

    Thanks for your understanding,

  • on the thyroid uk site they are encouraged to post thier test results and for others to comment. i was told this directly by the adminstrators.

  • Hi Grace

    Thanks but HealthUnlocked forum rules are not to give out medical advice or diagnosis and we wholeheartedly support this.

    The nature of liver disease is very complex and varied and so it is only your own doctor who has access to your medical history and test results that can give you proper advice on your medical condition.

    Best wishes
