The team at Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health treats a variety of chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Other chronic diseases that require specific management are:
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is diagnosed when the force of the blood against your artery walls is higher than normal. That can raise your risk of heart attack or stroke as well as complications in your internal organs.
To manage hypertension, your provider recommends making dietary and exercise changes. They’ll often prescribe medications to also keep your numbers under control.
If you have weakened bones due to osteoporosis, your provider recommends vitamin and mineral supplements and medications to slow bone deterioration. You’ll receive exercise recommendations and modifications to keep your bones healthy and prevent further progression of the disease.
Obesity is linked to several chronic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. The team at Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health can help you overcome obesity with nutritional counseling and other medically-supported weight-loss interventions.
Migraines are more than just a bad headache. They are a neurological condition that can take you out of work, social activities, and daily tasks. Your provider can help you discover your migraine triggers to avoid episodes and offer medications to ease symptoms.
Your thyroid is a gland in your neck that controls many important bodily processes, including body temperature and metabolism. If you have an under (hyper) or over (hypo) production of thyroid hormone, the providers at Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health can help with medications or other therapies to regulate your production of thyroid hormone.
