Chronic Disease Management

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management focuses on alleviating symptoms of your long-term illness with ongoing support and effective treatment. Unfortunately, 6 in 10 people in the United States suffer from a chronic illness.

If you suffer from a chronic disease, one that lasts a year or longer, you need long-term treatment.

Chronic disease management can:

  • Control flare-ups
  • Alleviate symptoms
  • Prevent the progression of your chronic disease
  • Reduce possible complications
  • Lower associated risks for developing other conditions

The team at Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC focuses on supporting your health as you learn to live with your symptoms, and helps you remain as active as possible. Chronic disease doesn’t have to rule your life when you can manage it effectively with the help of Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC.

Why do I need chronic disease management?

If you suffer from any of the following, you might be a candidate for chronic disease management:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Asthma
  • Sleep apnea
  • Kidney disease
  • Chronic lung disease

You can reduce your risk factors for chronic disease if you don’t smoke or use tobacco, drink less alcohol or eliminate it completely, and exercise. You can also keep chronic disease at bay when your weight stays within a healthy range.

Unfortunately, your family history can play a role in whether you suffer from chronic disease, but the team at Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC has the expertise to monitor you and help you experience healthy outcomes with recommended treatments.

What can I expect with chronic disease management?

Your long-term support includes education and monitoring. The goal at Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC is to equip and empower you to make healthy choices throughout your life, helping you manage your condition.

Management might include:

  • Annual exams
  • Medication management
  • Laboratory tests
  • Monitoring your blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Screenings for cholesterol
  • Cancer screenings
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Educational resources 

Your provider at Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC might also refer you to other providers for expert coordination of your chronic illness. However, they maintain the overall monitoring to make sure you get the best care possible.
