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.

About MG Xplained
The MG XPLAINED story is based on a real person – Jayde! It reflects her story, her experiences and her advice to others. There have also been lots of people who contributed along the way with their stories and advice. Thanks to everyone who helped create MG Xplained!
The MEDICINE X team are doctors, artists, and creative writers that all work to make sure of one thing – the information is easy to understand. No more medical jargon! Everything is correct and up-to-date!
Each of the stories we create is different, so there are experts in the field of MG that have reviewed the story to ensure it is spot on in terms of medical information.
