Myasthenia Gravis Xplained

Through storytelling

Meet Jayde

Hi, I’m Jayde!

I’ve got Myasthenia Gravis also known as MG. MG has affected me and a lot of the things that I can do but it also hasn’t stopped me from being able to do the things I love. Check out my video to find out more about my journey with MG.

Medicine X Story

Working as a medical doctor, I realised that far too many patients are confused about their diagnoses, their conditions and their treatments. There’s a disconnect between the language that doctors use, and what everyday people understand. This can make you feel incredibly hopeless and anxious at an often very difficult time in your life.

We believe there is a better way. We believe all patients, regardless of age, gender, culture or condition, should have access to medical information they can understand! Everyone should feel informed and empowered, in order to engage with their doctors and be involved in making medical decisions.

This is why MEDICINE X was created.
