A chronic disease is one that lasts longer than a year and requires ongoing medical attention. Chronic diseases often limit your daily activities.
Management of chronic disease means controlling your daily symptoms and preventing complications associated with your condition. Without management, chronic diseases can cause health problems or progress.
The chronic disease management offered at Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health involves preventive measures, such as regular screenings, check-ups, monitoring, and patient education. Your provider also coordinates care with specialists who are handling complex issues associated with your chronic disease.
