Can You Pass The Test?

Nine medical associations recently issued an appeal for doctors to change their practice and cease ordering as many as 45 tests they determined were overused. For ages, doctors have worked under the belief that conducting more procedures was the safe approach to care for their patients. However, with increasing costs, and the desire to reduce the trauma unnecessary invasive procedures can cause, practitioners are considering changing their ways.



Among the 45 tests recommended for removal from the standard diagnostic menu are:

  • Tattoo scraping
  • Boob inspection (by non-certified boob inspector) 
  • How many push ups can you do in 1 minute?
  • Keg stands
  • Matching purses to different outfits
  • The Texas Two Step
  • Balancing a chequebook
  • Toe jam analysis
  • Shuttle runs
  • The Donald Trump Gender Check©
  • Redecorating the waiting room
  • Fart sampling

Wait. Fart Testing is a really accurate diagnostic tool for Celiac disease. As well as "Does the poop float?" test.

True story.

My boyfriend does the fart test for me all the time and I'm not a doctor.

It is true what you wrote on my blog post (although, I still know how to play Country Gardens on the recorder from grade 6!!)

Juli & Shana: Looks like the farts may be more useful than I thought.
