6.2. SOME EXPLANATIONS TO THE QUERTIONS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE.
6.2.1. The questionnaire includes some private questions. Can I fill in the questionnaire anonymously?
Yes, you can. You are allowed to make up the kid’s last name instead of writing the real one. You’re also allowed not to write your phone number. But you should give your E-mail by all means.
6.2.2. Why are there so many questions devoted to psychological state of the kid in the questionnaire?
Because it influences asthma course drastically. Any doctor can confirm that fact.
6.2.3. Why are there so many questions about the same information with different formulations in different sections?
That helps to exclude loss or twist of the information.
6.2.4. Why don’t you need to inspect the kid? Why do you ask only about hormonal medications? Maybe the questionnaire was made by a bad doctor? Or maybe he disrespects his colleagues?
Let me insure you that I deeply respect my colleagues no matter in what country they work. I’m sure that they have done everything possible based on analyses results. I’m sure they have prescribed lots of various meds for your child.
My task is to do what they haven’t done. And I will base my work on practices which appeared 1000 year before first labs and modern pills, and my own explorations.
I could ask you to inspect your child again in a lab, to see an allergist, immunologist, pulmonologist etc., but I don’t want to waste your time and money.
