Iron Deficiency in Women’s Health Xplained

Through storytelling

Medicine X Story

Working as a medical doctor, Medicine X founder, Kim Chilman-Blair realised that far too many people are confused about their diagnoses, their conditions, and their treatments. The language that doctors use, and what everyday people understand can be two totally different things.

Here at Medicine X, we believe that everyone should feel informed and empowered so they can engage with their doctors and be involved in making medical decisions. That’s why Medicine X isn’t just another boring and complicated fact sheet – we explain medical issues through stories based on real people. It’s relatable, simple, and gives you the information you need.

We hope this helps you on your journey!
