When sharing information online about your health or a specific condition, you should know there is always a risk that someone could use this information against you. For example, medical and life insurance companies have clauses that exclude pre-existing conditions or employers may not want to employ someone with a high-cost or high-risk disease. We know these risks are real.
As for sharing health information, we believe the more health information you share, the closer we get to improving our health system and advancing the knowledge of your conditions. So, all we can ask is that you participate as fully as you feel comfortable doing.
