Doctors, Ask Yourself These Questions about Treatment Scores

A 50-year-old man is just diagnosed with type II diabetes. He wants to discuss the following 5 treatments with you.

1. Metformin
2. Glucotrol (glipizide)
3. Cinnamon capsules
4. Diet and exercise
5. Farxiga (dapagliflozin)

You immediately give your patient the Treatment Scores which represent the “net treatment benefit” according to the medical literature. Wait? You don’t do that. Why don’t you do that? Because the most important thing the patient needs to know, the “net treatment benefit,” doesn’t exist. How have you practiced your entire medical career without knowing the net treatment benefit for the patient?

This gaping hole has never been filled because the mathematics is difficult and the organization of the data is extremely complex.

Ask yourself to at least grade the above treatments. Are those treatments grade A? Grade B? Grade C? Grade D? Grade E? Are you unable to quantify 5 of the most common treatments in the world for one of the most common diagnoses in the world?

My cantankerous great aunt Nellie was right. All doctors are quacks. (Smile.)

It’s dark. Why hasn’t anyone invented the light bulb yet?

It’s not the doctors’ fault that patients never have any idea what the net treatment benefit for them might be. Doctors have never had the tools that they need.

Here at TreatmentScoresBlog.com we are writing essays and demonstrating the tools that we have invented to derive the net treatment benefit.

Treatment Scores fix the problem. We give physicians the 4 tools they need. 

Together, let’s figure out what the existing 27 million medical studies actually say about treatments. (See the disclaimers below.)
