Getting The Picture?

For most of us, no other person is better suited to make health care decisions for us than our own self. No healthcare provider, no matter how many years of training and experience, is going to have their best chance for success if you, the patient, are not engaged and involved in the process.

The best/first thing you should be aware of is where your health is today. Too often the term "patient history" only begins where a problem was noticed and diagnosis began. Wouldn't it be better if your doctor had a baseline history on you? If you've ever gotten a generic answer, about what is "normal", from your health practitioner you were probably being cared for by a fine doctor. They just didn't have any past history to compare your current condition to. Make sense?

On Blood Information Database you are able to create your own picture of health by getting better informed about what might be going on with you. We aren't going to offer you medical advice but we will encourage you to see your healthcare practitioner as a "well" or "concerned" patient. If using this site creates questions in your own mind about what state your personal health might be in then maybe you will have gotten the most important thing out of using BloodID- Self Awareness.

To use the site you must first set up a user account. To create an account, or to log in if you already have one set up, click here..

Once you're logged in you'll be able to set up your own profile and have access to the General Health Appraisal; the health questionnaire designed, by doctors, to help raise your awareness of different areas of your own personal well-being. Like all information you gather on BloodID, the questionnaire is used anonymously so you don't have to worry about tying your name or contact info to anything of record.

A Pound Of Cure

Too many times the problems we end up facing turn out to be bigger events than they needed to be. Anyone that's ever been described as "never being sick a day in their life" can probably attest to the benefits of being proactive with one's health and early detection.

So, when the time comes to choose up sides, what's your feeling? Is it better to be part of the problem, or part of the solution? What we do can usually be summed up in the old saying about an ounce of prevention. Where do you stand when it comes to your own personal health? Are you trying to be part of the solution or are you allowing yourself to be part of your problems?
