Sidelined: How Women Manage & Mismanage Their Health (Paperback)
DON'T MAKE ANOTHER HEALTHCARE DECISION WITHOUT READING THIS BOOK
"If men had cramps, they'd have cured this by now..."
"I told my doctors about my pain for years, but they told me it was all in my head..."
Sidelined: How Women Manage & Mismanage Their Health discloses how women have been marginalized and hesitate to take control over their own healthcare. But what's behind this nationwide medical crisis? Too often, women downplay or ignore their symptoms to avoid being "difficult," often blaming themselves for serious illness.
The end result could be inferior care, which can lead to serious consequences.
In Sidelined, writer and researcher Susan Salenger explains why women are misdiagnosed more often than men, and why their symptoms often go unrecognized or even disputed. This book teaches readers how to take charge of their health, make informed decisions, and leave their appointments with answers instead of just questions.
Knowing how to advocate for your own healthcare can mean the difference between healthy outcomes and years of needless agony, or even death.
This important women's health book equips readers with the knowledge, language, and skill sets they need to overcome the gender bias that is present in the medical industry and get the best healthcare possible.
