When prescribing a medication, doctors have to compare the positive effect of the medication against any complications it may cause, because treatment benefits must exceed treatment risks. However, when treating koliroma, most doctors should just prescribe the medicine that has the strongest positive effect.

Which of the following, if true, best supports the recommendation for doctors treating koliroma?

(A) Koliroma is a very rare disease that can be detected only through special laboratory blood tests.

(B) Some medications against koliroma cause serious side effects that can lead to even more severe health problems.

(C) Unlike many other diseases, koliroma is not likely to cause any complications if it is properly treated.

(D) Detecting koliroma does not involve any medications that could cause long-term negative effects on patients’ health.

(E) All medications used for koliroma have the same negative effects.

I narrowed my choices to C and E, and unfortunately, chose C.

My reasoning is as follows - I felt I needed information that showed the benefits of treating koliroma versus not treating it. E tells me that all medications have the same negative effect, but we do not know if these negative effects carry more risk than not treating koliroma altogether.

C indicates any proper treatment will not cause any complications.

I chose what I thought was the better of two weak choices!
