When people dive into online research, inaccurate information can make them more nervous, says Dr. Denise Leonardi, medical director of Lovelace Health Plan and a family physician for 26 years.

"A lot of times people come in saying, 'I have a headache. I must have a brain tumor,' " she says.

People with low health literacy may have trouble understanding what is happening with their bodies, Leonardi says. If they don't understand their condition, they are unlikely to follow instructions, she says.
When patients do their own research, she does not suggest simply plugging a diagnosis into a search engine. That nets too many sites and blogs with inaccurate information. She also avoids sites with distracting advertisements.

While that takes time, Leonardi says she "loved it when people brought me stuff so I could correct any misinformation."
