Diagnosis

(En español:Diagnóstico)

Say: dy-ig-no-sus

The word diagnosis is a fancy name for how doctors figure out what's making you sick. Doctors collect all kinds of information to find out what's making you feel sick by asking questions and ordering tests, like blood tests or x-rays. After you are diagnosed with something, doctors can treat you with medicine and other things to help you get better!
