You should not hesitate to discuss your researched findings with your health care provider. Sometimes it helps to bring the articles or papers that you have found with you to your doctor. Make him a copy also. And follow up to see that he or she can comment latelr if not at the time of the appointment. There is so much for health care professionals to keep up with these days. What you may be reading about may not yet be clinically available or approved yet, but it doesn't mean that you can't access it or something like it somewhere. You are your best advocate, so do persist in obtaining answers to your questions, but know what you are talking about or at least have the details at hand. And there is always the second opinion.
