Preventive measures should be propagated. Preexisting co-morbidities must be checked for and dashvidha rogi pariksha should be done to assess atura and dosha bala in order to assess prognosis and decide dosage of therapeutics. Treatment should be started after proper evaluation of roga avastha, rogi and roga bala, status of prana. Outcomes of therapeutic regime can be evaluated through examination of characteristics of vikaropshaman reflective of dhatusamyata.
