How should doctors consider race?

  visningar 0


Månad sedan

Race is not genetic. It’s a concept most of us are familiar with, and yet, we haven’t really questioned why race plays a crucial role in medicine and scientific research. It’s one of the first things your doctor asks when filling out your charts, it can determine what your insurance will cover, and we paid special attention to how Covid-19 spread in BIPOC communities. But more and more, doctors are beginning to question whether a patient’s race should be considered when providing care, and if it’s eliminated from the equation, what should be included instead. Glad You Asked host Lee Adams wants to know: What role should race play in medicine?

Instead of race, why not using haplogroup method? It was genetic thing based ancient human migration. Y haplogroup in East Asia mostly O, in native American mostly Q, and in Europe mostly R. Maybe someday will be compulsory gen test and the data will be saved in medical record. So instead of race we have genomics data.

Ofcourse there is a difference between races. A race who developed on a different continent seperated far away from another race will get different traits and features then others. That's how evolution works. It worked for millions of years and its still currently at play. But now people are gonna see this as racist? A black man has because of this a few positive traits but also a few negative traits compared to another race. You'll see that when you compare any race to another race. Because we are not the same. And that's wonderfull. A world would be boring with all the same kind of people. But don't see actual science as racisme, wokies. Don't see it as racist when you name a few of those negative bits. Ofcourse the science doesn't always work because some people find themself on the outsides of the spectrum. But on avarege you'll come pretty close. People are not wrongfully diagnosed because of their skincolor. People are correctly diagnosed depending on their DNA-structure. You sir, you bring skincolor into the game. But in a few generations it doesn't matter anymore. We will all be mixed up. The worlds is gonna be one race at some point in the future. Except for the Chinese. Haha.. those racist mawfuckers..they are not gonna marry black folks. Ever seen a chinese black baby? haha There are not a lot of them. As soon as he said race is a social construct, i was outtaaa here. "for the most part, we all believed that"? Really? You just throw away evolution theory? When we talk about all kinds of species of birds and cats and bears.. then it is science but with humans it's a social construct? Come'on VOX. Do the science. And for my experience, i do see on avarage a difference in behaviour between white and black. Between black and asian. Between aisan and latino. Which is wonderfull. I love the difference in people and culture when i'm on holiday. "Social construct" hahaha these guys are so far down the Rabbithole.Ofcourse there are people who don't fit the stereotype and find themself on the outside of the spectum. But stereotypes are there for a reason. It means many people think the same about another group of people. But that ain't bad. Luckily we are all different. You guys make it seem bad we are all different. You guys make it seem racist that i acknowledge the differences. It's just basic science. We're not gonna change science because of a few people who are sensitive to the truth.

Concerning the FEV tests at the beginning. You do realize that the main reason that the second percentage result is lower, is because of variance? His first result was 3.61 L and his second was 3.38 L. If you want to show the race norming effect correctly, the FEV values has to be the same. The conclusion you are suggesting is therefore heavily skewed. The norming effect is definitly a thing, but your showcase is absolutely not scientific.

This video has covered pretty much all the important points, that race norming and race based treatments are kind of a weak proxy for other genetic differences that can alter medical outcomes, and that genetic testing is a more accurate tool, but it's already something that the medical community knows and is actively working on. It's a good summary of where we've been and where we are, but you need to take it a step further to where we're going. Where we're going, as said in the video, is genetic based treatments, using people's actual genome instead of approximate ancestry to inform healthcare decisions, but federal laws against discrimination based on genetics are minimal. You can't be discriminated against for health insurance or employment, and that's it. Yes, many states have state laws that are more protective, but many states don't. It's definitely something we should sort out now before it becomes a problem in the future rather than complain about it in a couple of decades when we've created another reason to push people into being second-class citizens.

I've been practising as a doctor in the UK for the last 8 years and indeed there are sadly a lot of racial stereotypes in the way that, until recently, doctors were taught to think. On racial norming, as you call it, of course it is highly imperfect - and with more and more racial mixing, increasingly irrelevant in some areas - but until personalised medicine becomes more accessible, it is the best we have. The point you make that we should always look at the individual is super important here. BUT 1) Assigning a racist intent to this, rather than seeing it as a once useful tool that's becoming outdated, reflects your ideology, not that of some white medical establishment. You are politicising medicine and science to serve your antiracist agenda. 2) Bonkers statements such as "race is not genetic" (of course race can also be described in purely social terms, this doesn't mean that its biological basis is not genetic) are highly confusing to laypeople, create in parts of society the mistrust to experts/media etc that we've become so familiar with, and ultimately do a great disservice to your cause and to society.

As a non English language native, each time English speaking people talk about race when discussing people it hurts... In Finnish, as in French, the word race is reserved for animals - using the word race to delineate humans of different skin tones just baffles me. It's always seemed to me that by dividing people with the word race, you reinforce the categorization of people based on the differentiation of skin tones. It's weird and it's messed up.

The problem is the way in which we come to describe people. We need to stop using and thinking in such simplistic manners, i.e. going off the outer appearance. Because ultimately that serves of no purpose and its 'racist'. Take 'Asian' for example. Why are we using a geographical word that encompasses 4.561 billion (2018) people across 48 different countries to record medical information. Are we saying that all these people share something in common in their DNA that the remaining 3 billion do not ?

It's important to reiterate that these genetic tests DON'T tell you your personal make-up, they just compare your profile with all the others they've gathered from across the world in their database and provide a percentage correlation. This means there is a skew towards regions of the world that do more of their tests as the data pool is larger and therefore more likely to have an increased number of similarities. If you tested an Indigenous Australian who it was known had not had any European ancestry, a dna ethnicity test such as this would show a high proportion of non-Indigenous Australian because their pool of Indigenous Australian specimens in their database is likely very low, so the results skew towards their larger data pools. it is best to think of these results as what regions of the world you are most genetically similar to right now than what your ancestry is.

I don't know that genetics should be incorporated into medicine as widely as the Vox guys think. Yes it ensures a far better/more specific form of medical care. But if you think racism is still an issue, the eugenics involved with genome profiling becoming a norm is going to be an even worse situation that the world isn't ready for.

@Aman We shouldn't use that word Race for it. There are no human races, period. But people are different and of course biology and genes determine if you're born black or white and other important differences when we talk about medicine. What we perceive as race and skin Colour is only a very tiny part of all the genes different from human to human. Thus noone can derive general-This will work every time-guidelines for medicine from it.

I’m not a scientist, but I don’t think psyche is a characteristic of race. To say the whole race has the same psyche just seems a bit rich. Besides, Africa is a huge continent, so there are multiple black ethnicities, and I don’t think North Africans would have all the same genetic characteristics as Sub-Saharan Africans, even though they all would have curly hair. Then, speaking about the US, hardly anyone is 100% black. Even people who think they are 100% black, most are probably at least 20% Latino, or 20% South Asian, or something. So, I think ‘race’ is just too broad of a concept, too imprecise, to be considered a genetic trait.

there is a broad consensus across both the biological sciences, and the social sciences that race is a social construct, not accurately representing human genetics. If you were to look at a black persons genes, vs a white persons genes, there would be no specific gene in that differentiates the black person from the white person.

So many patients with Behcets have a doctor deny their diagnosis because it doesn't match with what they remember from med school of it being a middle eastern disease. Additionally many people with middle eastern anscestory appear white / african / asian so without asking it is very easy to miss middle eastern anscestory. (For example I have Jewish anscestory which often links to a higher amount of middle eastern genetic material)

Not every medical provider gives patients the ability to choose their race on forms. I've seen some of my medical records that and I know someone else chose what race to put me in the system as because some of my medical records from different practices have marked me as white and only white. I'm mixed Black and white and light skinned and I never mark white except when given the option to mark multiple races which I've yet to see on a medical intake form. For things that do have a genetic basis that can affect medicine it's a toss up on which genetic population I'll trend with and considering Black people in the US on average have about 25% non-African ancestry it's a toss up for any individual descended from enslaved people in the US not to mention how immigrants from places like East Africa are grouped together with them despite not sharing a common ancestry.

It's disappointing that we've had generations of scientists and doctors make the same logical mistakes when examining statistics. The 'true average' lung capacity of a subgroup may be different than another, but blindly accepting it as an inmate genetic difference is intellectually lazy at best or outright negligent. There can be other confounding factors causing this difference other than race - activity level, diet, environmental exposures - that are likely to be measurably different between subgroups and NOT independent. Using 'race' as a proxy for genetics may be pragmatic dependent on resources, but solely relying on the typical prevalence of a genetic expression within that race is, again, at best intellectually lazy or worse intellectually negligent.

Randi 26 dagar sedan
I think it depends of the level of population diversity. Indonesia is overwhelmingly of Javanese descent so collecting sufficient data of other races to create a baseline would be difficult. In Singapore race data is collected as there are 3 main racial groups, but I can't say for sure how it's exactly used for medical treatment, though there are definitely differences in lifespan between different sexes and races due to genetic and socio-economic factors, so interventions may be targeted accordingly. That said, given that Africa is the cradle of humanity with the largest genetic diversity, using a generic umbrella term of "Black" is a lousy categorical variable as it lacks specificity, much like lumping all Asians as being the same.

And btw why are South and Central Asians included in the same group! Like yes! The Indo-Europeans first lived in Central Asia but now they are replaced and inhabitanted by Turks and Mongols which have rather nomadic and East Asian ancestry. They don't even speak Indo-European languages! So I think 23 and me has to do this massive rectification while showing results! It's completely inaccurate to put these populations side by side.
