Revealed! Why patients lie to their doctors

STORY MOOD : HEALTHY AND FIT Mood




Most respondents said they wanted to avoid being judged, and didn't want to be lectured about how bad certain behaviours were. More than half were simply too embarrassed to tell the truth.

When the doctor asks us things like, how often we exercise or what have we been eating lately, we tend to lie or stretch the truth. It's mostly because we want to avoid being judged.

According to a recent study, 60 to 80 percent of people surveyed have not been forthcoming with their doctors about information that could be relevant to their health.

Besides fibbing about diet and exercise, more than a third of respondents didn't speak up when they disagreed with their doctor's recommendation.

Another common scenario was failing to admit they didn't understand their clinician's instructions.
