When reading the Help section I came across the following
Often asked questions that are off-topic include:
medical advice for yourself or others
However I didn't find any meta discussing defining the term, which, in my opinion, can be unclear in some questions.
According to the definition I was given by @CareyGregory
Medical advice is any question that asks for a personal advice, diagnosis, prognosis, second opinion, or interpretation of lab results/medical notes/etc. Or more broadly, any question that would require a health professional to know personal details about you (or someone else) to give a proper answer.
From this definition, in some questions, it seems that one needs to know the motive behind asking a question and may lead to wrong assumptions (as it was done with my question here - the section considered medical advice was removed already - as my goal was just to find out the tools available to help in a specific problem, as a curiosity, not as final/secondary medical decision).
Therefore, I wonder what does the community see as medical advice?
Is it the definition shared by @CareyGregory? If not, which one is?
I have read a meta thread on the topic, however it seems "medical advice" has a known definition by which the community guides itself upon, which I didn't find.
