Treatment is conducted by the doctor at the observation of your symptoms.
Maintaining proper diet balance is necessary for you. If the symptoms are not being very complex, patients can be managed at home with daily follow up. If the symptoms are complex day by day, then hospitalization is essential for the patients.
