Privacy Info. & Disclaimer of Liability; Follow Doc's Advice

Postby Lauren » Sat Jul 16, 2005 11:53 am

This is a non-moderated public forum. Posts on this discussion board site may be inaccurate or contain erroneous information, because it is open discussion from the general public. By using this site, you are agreeing that you will confirm any info as being accurate or false with your doctor. If you have or suspect you have a medical condition, go seek competent and adequate medical attention. This website is not intended to diagnose, treat, medically advise anyone whatsoever. The administrator is not liable for actions or lack of actions by individuals related to usage of the website. Please use common sense and see a doctor for any treatments. Although you may see talk of treatments, advice, medication, etc., this site does not endorse or make claims of its own on those subjects.

You should never treat yourself using something or some idea you saw on the internet. That is not the purpose of this site. The purpose of this site is to provide you support by talking to each other and to give you an idea of what others’ doctors are doing to treat them. THEN, you can print the information, take it to your doctor and follow his or her exact instructions for treatment and nothing else.

Self treatment and treatment not approved by a doctor is NOT SAFE. Any information posted here is done so by private individuals, is not medical advice and should not be construed as such. Using this site is at your own risk.

We discourage posting any personal, identifiable information on this site. You should not post personal information about doctors or anyone else (addresses, phone numbers, e-mails, full names, etc.) without their consent. If you would like to exchange info of a personal nature - we recommend giving an alternate e-mail address to someone for that purpose. You should avoid using your primary address on the internet.

Unfortunately our site, as are many others, is frequently a target of "spambot" registrations. This happens when hackers set up automated routines that register false users for a group, often listing pornographic or commercial web sites along with the false registration.

If you use your personal, private address, our site gives you the option of hiding the address from the general public. We recommend that you choose that option. You may also be assured that we will not provide your e-mail address to anyone (unless you choose to make it public, in which case people can look it up). Further, we very rarely issue general mail to our members from our site.

While there may be a lot of good/verifiable information on this site, you must first seek qualified care from a physician/doctor prior to embarking upon any treatment.

Do not take any information here as medical advice. You could potentially be putting your own life into a complete stranger's hands.

The information here is posted mostly by non-medical professionals and by sufferers with experience - but not people medically qualified to give medical advice.

Information represents one individual’s personal experience and may be harmful to your health.

If you post here, please don't offer medical advice. You must word it in a way starting with, for instance, "First, see a doctor and follow your doctor’s instructions. Here's what worked for me (insert what worked for you here) - but you should follow your doctor's advice".

Thanks for your understanding in that some people may have adverse reactions to what you may have tried. We intend for any visitor to take any information they see here, check with their doctor for approval and then be treated according to that doctor's recommendations.

Thank you,

The C. Difficile Support Group/Foundation
