Determining your anamnesis, or medical history, can be challenging, especially if you do not have a family that is supportive in your endeavor. To get better results when attempting to create your anamnesis, you can try allowing family members to answer your medical questions in several formats. Some people may not want to talk about their medical history. Others may not enjoy writing answers that include lengthy medical terms. In either situation, you have a better chance of determining your family's medical history if you offer several options for answering your questions, offer to listen to your relatives' stories of their health conditions, and be sure to keep private information private.
