I did prepared for this medical check-up. No, not about health. I prepared questions. For two years in row, I received a notification in my medical check-up result said: Obese. The result said I suffer obesity. Three weeks ago, while chit chat around the lunch table I told people about that fact, and they said: “What? maybe your result was split to some other”. My colleague then take the responsibility: “Yes, maybe your result mixed up with mine.” 😀
Then, this morning I relied the same message to the physician that examined me. She was writing when I told her about my obese result. She stopped writing and look at me for ten second then said: “No, you are obviously not obese.” So I asked: “Why the result didn’t say that?” She said it might because the IMT ~~my IMT only .3 over the standard~~ but then realized that I was telling her something. She paused and think then laugh. Knowing that she ~~or her company~~ made a hurtful mistake. See, there is a way to being in obesity. Someone have to way up to a severe overweight before it. As a physician she said I am not obese while the result say it is. What’s that? Bias? How I will be able to believe other results when I know this one is not right?
Standards are good. Bias is to be consider. Mistake is ter-la-lu.
