It is a very complex disease in which there are many dushyas i.e. vata, pitta, kapha, meda, mamsa (muscle), kleda (body fluid), shukra (semen), shonit (blood), vasa (fat), majja (bone marrow), lasika, rasa, ojas. Were Kapha is the dominant Dosha and Meda is common Dushya in all prameha samprapti. As it is disease related to metabolism it suggests that there is defect in the Agni (Agnimandya).
