Pain or discomfort is an alarm which activates us about our health. By this way we can say that painfull diseases are at least better than those which do not produce any sign or symptoms and sudden causes big damage to health; these are actually called silent killers. Word disease itself says disturbance in ease, but these silent killers do not disturb in many cases so these are very special. Why I am saying special because it is natural tendency of anybody that he or she likes to follow doctor’s instruction only when they have some kind of discomfort, otherwise it is a common belief that doctor is instructing for increasing “bill” only. This is the biggest problem during treatment. Many patient of silent killers like Diabetes or high blood pressure do not take their medicine regularly or do not follow instructions related to diet and exercise just because of absence of any discomfort. On various occasions I personally found that when first time somebody was diagnosed for high blood pressure or diabetes, many of them do not accept and ignore it by saying’ if I do not have any problem then how is it possible?
These human tendencies make treatment of such disease more complicated.
Actually for such diseases we need to spread awareness as maximum as possible some trusts or organizations like maheshwar health care & research foundation are working good in this directions.
The most important thing I like to share regarding this topic is, patients really want true treatment but they do not keep continue as some marketing companies or unregistered doctors, misguiding them by producing fake advertisement like, 100% Guaranteed treatment in 3 to 6 months etc. Effort must be done at level of government bodies also so that such misguiding companies or doctors can be punished. Once real facts about prognosis & treatment of disease are known by patient, definitely they will follow proper instructions and these silent killers will be controlled better. So, final advise is to make people aware about these silent killers.
