I have discussed this with a long-term user. She did not
find it distracting but had a slightly different
interpretation of the meanings in that list:

- left arrows means: this (on the left) is a health issue
- null symbol means: this is NOT a health issue

This interpretation only worked when there was no problem of
type episode with an associated health issue:

Last            Problem                         Health issue
7/2010          poor control            Diabetes

However, we decided that we *can* make the column headers more concise:

Last            Problem                         In health issue
11/2010         flu                                     0
12/2010         Hypertension            <==
 7/2010         poor control            Diabetes

Ellipsis is used for "something being omitted"
under my language cultural knowledge.
