If you live undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with health issues that are over-bearing and even tortuous at times, life can seem impossible to get through. It is important we all work together to help each other live through this while a cure is being found.
We need to make sure educational information is available in more locations, so those living undiagnosed or misdiagnosed have access to information that could make their lives much easier to live and deal with.
It is important to do everything we can to bring awareness to what is happening to millions of people, so that misdiagnosing stops and compassion and care begins. Coram Specialty Infusion Services is one infusion company helping the need of those living on iv nutrition. Combining efforts to bring Nutritional Support to those who depend on TPN, JTube, GJ, alternative nutrition; and provide assistance in in different states.
Will someone listen before too many more people have to lose their lives?
