Some health conditions that are commonly misdiagnosed

Wisconsin courts often hear medical malpractice cases based on a misdiagnosis by a doctor. Doctors may miss a diagnosis for any number of reasons, but there are a few conditions that go undiagnosed more often than others. Celiac disease, for example, may be difficult to diagnose because of its non-specific, vague symptoms. Celiac disease is a reaction to gluten, which is present in some foods. It can be diagnosed by a blood test.

New COPD guidelines may lead to misdiagnosis

New research indicates that new guidelines for diagnosing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, may be causing patients to be misdiagnosed in Wisconsin and worldwide. A recently-published study calls for the guidelines to be modified in order to correct the problem.
