Disease:

The word is actually self explanatory – we can think of it as ‘disease’ – disturbed ease. Disease, in other words, literally means being uncomfortable.

Every disease has an origin. But there are certain diseases that are difficult to diagnose because of the confusing symptoms. The diseases may be autoimmune, bacterial, cancerous, digestive, sexually transmitted, etc. They can be cured by a number of strategies such as antibiotics, other medications and surgeries

Antibiotics are the drugs that block the biochemical pathways of bacteria that cause diseases. These do not work against viral infections because the viruses depend upon the biochemical mechanisms of the host.

Identification of disease:

A disease is associated with symptoms. In other words, our body shows certain indications with which we can assume that we may be suffering from a disease.

  • We know that different parts of our body perform different functions.

  • Any of these functions are disturbed, we can say that something is wrong within our body or something has changed in it. This is a symptom of getting a disease.

  • Symptoms just indicate that there is a disease. They do not indicate the exact type of disease.

  • The doctors often look for the signs of a disease in order to find out the exact problem. These signs, unlike the symptoms, are more definite indication of a disease. Sometimes laboratory tests are also done in order to find a disease.
