Prognosis of Disease!
This is the most common question in the patient’s mind. In medical terminology it’s called Prognosis. i.e. Future of the Disease. Some patient’s disease gets cured in short duration very easily by use of fewer medicines, simple care by attendant and advice of well qualified doctor without living any abnormality behind. On other hand some disease are required lifetime medication with proper care to optimize the quality of life. This prognosis depends on various factors such as nature of disease, acuteness or chronic nature of disease, affecting system, age of patient, general condition of patient etc. It’s most scientifically explained in ayurveda texts. The Ayurveda, Science of life classifies the diseases as per their prognosis as follows
It gets cured completely in very short duration with the help of fewer oral medicines like Flue, Gastroenteritis etc This type of diseases have very mild nature, but if neglected prognosis of disease get worsens.
This type of diseases requires long term medication and or surgical interventions to cure. Sometimes it may require hospitalization for the treatment. Generally it will not leave any anomaly behind but if surgery was performed it will leave a scar behind.
Eg TB, Cataract, Appendicitis etc
In these diseases patient will feel better with medication, on discontinuation of therapy disease suffering starts! The disease will not cure for the lifetime but best thing is patient can live quality life with medication and proper care without hampering lifespan.
Eg. Diabetes, Psoriasis, Asthma etc
This type of disease, patients suffering can be reduced to some extent with the help of medication but still it affects the quality as well quantity of life.
Irrespective of the prognosis, patient can enjoy meaningful life happily with the help of willpower.
