In brief: Absolutely, when

Diagnosed early we can decrease the risk of uncontrollable bleeding.
Unfortunately it is still a devastating condition in many cases.

In brief: Secondarily

Dic is a phenomenon hat occurs when some gets really sick.
For instance, a severe blood infection can lead to dic. Then it is the blood infection that makes someone sick, and dic is merely a marker of how sick that person is. The treatment of dic is to treat the illness that is making the person so sick, ie treat the infection.
