The Significance of Disease Diagnosis

The etiological idea of diseases and the methodology of treatment varies among different systems of medicine. However, the mode of disease diagnosis (Nosological diagnosis) is common for many systems.

usa, 3 January 2018 -- It's a fact that the close association between disease diagnosis and remedial diagnosis prevailed in Modern medicine may not be observed in other holistic systems, however, diagnosis is featuring its own importance even yet in other systems. The mode of treatment might be either holistic treatment, specific treatment, symptomatic treatment and general life support to the patient. Modern medicine gives more importance to the specific treatment, whereas, systems like Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Siddha, Unani, Chinese medicine, Naturopathy etc. give more importance to the holistic concept of treatment, i. e. remedy section by considering the physical, mental and emotional characters and life situation of the sick individual.

However, in these systems also, disease diagnosis is equally important, because, under certain situations, the functioning of the affected organ or the device of the body has to be backed up. The individual also may require some specific form of support, for that your organ remedies should be deployed. Apart from that, disease diagnosis is essential for planning the illness control measures, prognosis, special precautions, to know the life threatening situations, prevention of spreading of disease to others. Diagnosis is quite needed for statistics, research and and to fulfill the academic interests. Above all, due with a medico-legal reasons, the doctor ought to know the detailed health status of his patient. Due to any or all these reasons, disease diagnosis is crucial, aside from the device of treatment directed at the patient.

Disease diagnosis and remedial diagnosis can be considered as the two sides of the same coin, hence, both are experiencing equal importance. Disease diagnosis is done by correlating the signs and outward indications of the patients (clinical features) with the information given by the bystanders and the lab investigation reports. On certain situations, there might be some difficulty in making a diagnosis, because, numerous diseases are experiencing almost similar clinical features. Moreover, rarely occurring diseases or a recently emerged disease may not be identified easily, especially by way of a general practitioner. Under such circumstances, a specialist's opinion might be needed. Very rarely, a team of doctors are involved in the act of diagnosis.

It is not possible to name each and every disease we run into in our day to day practice. Depending on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10), a distinctive percentage of diseases can't be named. Such cases, a diagnosis is achievable notwithstanding having several health related symptoms in the patient. Since the patient is suffering, he must be treated symptomatically. Some symptoms or conditions are wrongly understood as diseases by the laymen. Like, clinical manifestations like jaundice, fever, vomiting, headache, malaise etc are not diseases; but clinical manifestations of some diseases. The naming of diseases is performed on several basis. All the diseases are named after the person who invented that particular disease (Buerger's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Weil's disease), some diseases on the foundation of area where in actuality the disease is common or identified for initially (African sleeping sickness, Madhura foot, Japanese encephalitis), on the cornerstone of some peculiarity of the symptoms (Chikungunya), or on the basis of the organism in charge of the infection (Falsiparum malaria, Amoebic dysentery, Bacillary dysentery), or on the cornerstone of the affected organ (Myocarditis, Nephritis, Appendicitis), on the basis of cause(Alcoholic hepatitis, Wool-sorter's disease), on the cornerstone old (Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Senile dementia), on the cornerstone of pathology(Mixed connective tissue disease, Mucopolyscaccharidosis)etc.

If several specific signs and symptoms are within a person, it is known as syndrome (Edward syndrome, Down syndrome, Laurence-moon syndrome). Nowadays, we hardly come across a patient having an individual disease, whereas most of patients are experiencing a set of diseases such as for example cardiovascular disease, diabetes, idiopathic hypertension, acid peptic disease, senile dementia, degenerative joint disease etc. Many diseases are classified under certain number of disorders. As an example: Degenerative joint disorders, Inflammatory bowel disorders, Psychosomatic diseases, Life-style disorders etc. Here, each group includes several diseases, but are grouped together due to some common features such as for instance pathological or etiological features.

Whenever a person concerns the physician for the very first time, immediate disease diagnosis may not be possible because of various reasons. However, considering the presenting clinical features and history distributed by the in-patient, the doctor may come to a provisional disease diagnosis. After doing the laboratory investigations, the ultimate diagnosis is done by correlating the clinical findings with investigation reports. However the therapy is not kept in pending till the final diagnosis, especially in case there is life threatening diseases such as for example diphtheria, wherein the procedure has to be started immediately when the disease is suspected, because, if we wait for the lab reports to come, the individual might be critical. Some recent laboratory tests help in early diagnosis, but unavailability of sophisticated labs doing such tests is just a major deficiency faced by many countries.

The development of science and technology has made a revolution in medical science. Now the concept of disease diagnosis done only on the cornerstone of clinical examination is outdated. It is now under the custody of some sophisticated machines and laboratory techniques, a couple of out of these pose more risk to the health. But, the noteworthy point is, under all lab reports, a disclaimer is written as "correlate with clinical findings", which emphasizes the significance of case taking and clinical examination done by the doctor. In this era, wherein doctor-patient relationship is disrupted, we run into many patients saying that the doctor has abruptly prescribed the medicine or referred for lab test without asking much questions and doing any kind of clinical examination.

The recent studies conducted at Mc Master university on the disease diagnosis is remarkable. They discovered that the name of the condition creates more panic among the patients. Like, an individual having sour eructation may not feel bad when a doctor says that he has acidity, on the other hand, he might get embarrassed if the physician tells him that he has Gastro-esophageal reflex disease, which is the medical terminology for recurrent burning eructations. A similar thing happens in all the cancer patients; once the disease is diagnosed as cancer, the patients mental and emotional status starts deteriorating. But, a doctor cant hide the condition from the in-patient due to several medical and legal issues. The greater alternative is always to secretly tell the diagnosis to the bystanders of the patient.

For a precise disease diagnosis, the cooperation from the individual and his members of the family is extremely essential. Each and every problem felt by the in-patient should be told to the doctor. Some silly matter for the patient can be a vital point for a diagnosis and treatment. Similarly, symptoms of long duration may be ignored by some patients. Purposeful hiding of symptoms may be dangerous. Some patients don't tell a doctor about the treatment he had taken previously. Frequent change of doctor (doctor shopping) may also cause difficulties. During consultation, patients habits, life situations, characters, food and bowel habits, relationship with others etc ought to be told. The reports of previous treatment and investigations ought to be told, that might save enough time necessary for a diagnosis. Hence always request a discharge summary while getting discharged from any hospitals. While consulting a health care provider, always take anyone who knows in regards to the patient. The in-patient can also make a note of his symptoms before choosing a consultation, so he won't forget to inform his symptoms completely regarding Otorrinolaringologia. In this busy life, there is a trend that in place of patient planning to a doctor, he sends somebody to the doctor for a "consultation ".Also there is a growth of individuals preferring over-the-counter purchase of drugs with out a prescription.

When a patient dies or becomes serious through the span of treatment, the next thing is to file a suit against the physician or by attacking the doctors and hospitals, consequently of an emotional outbreak and a preconceived indisputable fact that it was due to medical negligence. Nowadays this can be a common story in the majority of the news papers. By promoting the doctor-patient relation ship (which is deteriorating nowadays), and also by going back again to the "outdated" family doctor concept, we can solve a lot of the health related issues.
