Is Anyone Else Concerned About All Ibs Publicity?

Recommended Posts

I have heard a commercial for celiac disease before (maybe I've already posted this). I think it was done by GIG and I actually heard it before I was diagnosed and I remember thinking it sounded like me and I was going to ask my doctor about it, but I didn't have to because she suggested testing for it. :)

If we all want commercials we should probably be donating money to places like GIG, otherwise I don't know how they would pay for it.

I had IBS...

Now I want herpes so I can be happy like those couples on TV. It's just grand!

Come to think of it, I need to raise my colesteral(sp?) too...

I think drug companies shouldn't advertise, they should only be allowed to fund 'A' government organization such as the CDC, who in turn should make generalized commercials and list all possible drugs that could relate to a condition.

Wow I could be "free of alergies" but then I may have an increased risk for.... This shouldn't be said on the air ether, since they always seem to lead up to a wonderful life because of the drug then list the problems it may cause, this would be best left to the doctors to explain before prescribbing the drug.

On my soap box of that, doctors should not be given 'gifts' from such companies. I can't accept gifts from my clients for reason of personal preference/gain. My business doesn't affect the welfare of individuals though! This mentality should hold for doctors too.

On a happer note, I am glad to be finally diagnosed with 'something' for many years, CT scans, blood test and etc, only made me a crazy hyper condreact(sp?).
