When children are not diagnosed properly, their symptoms may be treated but not the true underlying cause. This can set a child and family up for losses from a very early age, which can be very devastating to a family.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
The celebrated author and paleo, gluten-free advocate Tina Turbin (http://www.PaleOmazing.com) launches a brand new, groundbreaking website addressing misdiagnosed disorders among children, http://www.KidsMisdiagnosed.org.
KidsMisdiagnosed.org is the collaborative accomplishment of Tina’s pioneering nonprofit group, comprised of children’s health advocates and physicians. The purpose of the website is to help fill a gap in the health field and raise awareness about the pervasiveness of child misdiagnoses. It contains weekly articles from leading medical professionals, titled Contributing Writers about commonly misdiagnosed illnesses, helpful diet suggestions, adverse drug effects, and much more.
“Misdiagnosing children is an issue near and dear to my heart,” Turbin says. “When children are not diagnosed properly, their symptoms may be treated but not the true underlying cause. This can set a child and family up for losses from a very early age, which can be very devastating to a family. I have a Medical Advisory Board that is growing rapidly, with many top professionals whom align with my vision and hopes to reach out and make a change.”
Turbin is a celebrated advocate on behalf of the gluten-free and celiac community. A beloved children’s author, she has been actively involved in helping children for decades through various non-profit organizations. “I know firsthand the hardships a family can experience from child misdiagnoses, and it’s become a passion of mine to help parents find the answers they’re looking for,” Turbin says. She is the mother of two celiac children who were not properly diagnosed with their condition until adulthood, and she herself suffered for years from the symptoms of celiac disease without proper diagnosis and treatment.
In the Internet age, Turbin’s highly anticipated website is expected to help meet the needs of families around the world who turn to the web for answers to their children’s health concerns. Turbin encourages families to visit her new website and contribute to the forums. KidsMisdiagnosed.org is always looking for article contributions from qualified medical professionals.
