It was brought to my attention that you stated that you are a medical professional in California.
Unless you wish to post your full licensed name and CA lisence number, you may not post that you are a medical professional. All of your future messages will be deleted if this occurs again.
Agree to disagree.
Posting a professional title gives readers undue trust in your messages. The warning was correct that no one should trust information given over the internet without consulting a KNOWN lisenced professional and/or doing one's own research, as anyone can say they have any background if there is no way to check it out.
This is not about whether the information is actually correct...it is about soliciting trust from people that may be in desparate situations.
Please be considerate of the sensitive nature of the support boards.
Please everyone do check advice out with a trusted professional and be safe.
