The Dangers of Overdiagnosis
It appears that around 50% of kids diagnosed with asthma may in fact not have the condition at all.
The Telegraph reports that in a new study published in the British Journal of General Practice, researchers from the University Medical Centre in Utrecht, The Netherlands, looked at the medical records of 656 children diagnosed with asthma at four centres. 53 per cent were found to have no clinical signs of the condition.
It seems that some of the non asthma suffering children may have just had hay fever!
It makes one wonder, given how much money pharma companies make out of drugs, what other conditions (physical and mental) are in fact the figment of an over enthusiastic doctor's or parent's imagination!
