take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

should be useful for others :) i don't have the patience for video usually, other than for pure entertainment. re info, so much faster to read vs listen. search-ability also wins.
