Guidelines for Management of Disease

Follow the following guidelines:

  • Establish a diagnosis.
  • Educate the patients about their condition.
  • Discuss the rationale for each particular treatment, how to use it, and what adverse events are likely.
  • Establish realistic patient expectations.
  • Involve patients in managing their disease. Encourage patients to use diaries to track triggers, frequency and severity of their symptoms, and response to treatment.
  • Encourage the patient to identify and avoid triggers.
  • Choose treatment based on the frequency and severity of attacks, the presence and degree of disability, and associated symptoms.
  • Create a formal management plan and individualize management. Consider the patient's preference, response to, and tolerance for, previously administered medications.
  • Beware of increasing frequency of acute medication use. Identify coexisting conditions (such as heart disease, gastrointestinal disease, renal impairment, pregnancy, uncontrolled hypertension, hyperlipidemia) as they may limit treatment choices.
