GROUP POLICIES:

1) This group is NOT for medical professionals. It's for patient-to-patient feedback only.

2) Selling of your service and/or products and Marketing your personal blog page, thyroid group, or charity is not allowed in the forum or in a PM to our members. Doing so will result in removal from the groups.

3) The FTPO groups are not about strong opinion. Opinions are all over the map! Rather, FTPO is about many solid, repeated patient experiences. To be clear: We are not totally against opinion. The problem comes in when people have strong opinions that go against things patients have learned repeatedly over the years. The opinions become confusing to new members, especially when patient experiences have debunked them.

These groups are not for those who continually contradict years of
proven patient experiences. We reserve the right to remove such people from these groups, due to the confusion they cause other members who are trying to learn about proven patient wisdom.

4) Comments made on this patient-to-patient group are not to be taken as personal medical advice or to replace the relationship with a doctor. It is for support and information. By using this group, you acknowledge that it is at your own risk and you accept that responsibility.

5) Keep comments clean and be supportive of one another. The FTPO groups are meant to be a positive environment and source of support for its members.

6) In the past, there have been issues with members Private Messaging multiple Admins or Advisors repeatedly, seeking personalized help with their health issues. These groups are NOT intended to replace your relationship with your doctor, or to serve as personalized health coaching. The Administrators and Advisors of these groups are volunteer Patients and have their own health issues, families, jobs, etc. Please be respectful of their time. Answering private messages is a problem, because it takes our staff away from the groups so others are not getting the help they need.

7) To help protect the privacy of our group members, please do not copy and paste or take screen shots of the group for any purpose.

8) If your membership results in what others deem to be problematic for the harmony and goals of the group, we reserve the right to remove you. Please be patient, kind, and respectful.
