The Oxford English Dictionary defines diagnosis as: 'Identification of a disease by careful investigation of its symptoms and history' . Regrettably, the value of the history in the diagnosis of disease often seems to be neglected in both undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. The considerable advances in medical technology have made it easy to carry out a multiplicity of tests. As a result, there is frequently an unfortunate tendency to rely on the results of tests before decisions are taken on diagnosis and treatment, even though such tests are often of limited value in the manage ment of the patients. This book is an attempt to redress the balance and place the proper emphasis on the diagnostic value of a well-taken and perspicacious history. The main purpose of the book is to show that most of the clinical problems encountered in daily practice can be dealt with effectively and satisfactorily on the basis of a good clinical history. This should be supplemented by a prob lem-orientated clinical examination, the primary function of which is either to confirm and amplify the diagnosis provided by the history, or to refute it.

In Weight Gain: When It’s Not Your Fault, Dr. Lance Dean Ashworth reveals that the struggle with weight is, in most cases, caused by a number of surprisingly common medical conditions. He explains how your symptoms, the lab values, the condition, and the cure all come together to help you lose weight. Some of the medical conditions that he sites are an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), anemia, post-menopausal hormone deficiencies in women, and psychological issues, among other conditions. Dr. Ashworth explains that physicians focus their attention on the individual diseases that result from being overweight or obese while ignoring the potential cure—weight loss itself. Instead of the “Band-Aid approach” to such diseases as diabetes and high blood pressure, physicians must focus on the cause of these conditions in their overweight patients, which is fatty tissue! He contends that a paradigm shift in the treatment of obesity is long overdue—a shift from the reactionary mentality of the current medical environment to a proactive, cure-driven focus on the conditions associated with obesity. Weight Gain: When It’s Not Your Fault provides the knowledge you need to ask your physician the right medically-relevant questions. These questions will guide you and your physician to determine how and why you gained weight in the first place.
