Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What is a chronic disease?

A chronic disease includes any illness that lasts more than six months, limits your daily functioning, and requires ongoing medical care. 

Though some people are born with chronic health conditions, most of these long-term diseases result from unhealthy behaviors like poor nutrition, little to no exercise, and the use of tobacco products. 

At the Comprehensive Care Clinic, Mrs. Mitchell specializes in family medicine, taking care of you and your loved ones. Family medicine specialists have the unique training to understand health problems that run in your family and create health plans that benefit everyone.

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management is about providing you with the education, tools, and guidance needed to manage your long-term illness at home. Without proper care, chronic diseases lead to other health complications that can affect your quality of life.

With chronic disease management at Comprehensive Care Clinic, Mrs. Mitchell aims to help you take control of your chronic disease, preventing or delaying complications. 

Who needs chronic disease management?

Anyone with a chronic health condition needs chronic disease management. Some of the chronic diseases Mrs. Mitchell manages include:

Diabetes occurs when your blood sugar numbers are higher than normal. Too much sugar in your blood damages your blood vessels and organs. 

High blood pressure
High blood pressure is a common chronic illness that develops without causing symptoms. When left untreated, high blood pressure puts you at risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Mrs. Mitchell screens for high blood pressure during your annual exams.

High cholesterol
High cholesterol is a health condition that increases your risk of heart disease. Like high blood pressure, you can have high cholesterol and not know it because it doesn’t cause obvious symptoms. 

Thyroid disorders
Your thyroid is an endocrine gland that makes hormones to control your metabolism (your body’s calorie-burning system). Thyroid disorders affect hormone production, causing many symptoms that affect your physical and emotional well-being.

What can I expect from chronic disease management?

You can expect empathic care from chronic disease management at Comprehensive Care Clinic. 

Mrs. Mitchell wants nothing more than to help you take control of your health. She talks with you about your condition, the types of treatments and therapies you need, and what you can do at home to manage or reduce symptoms.
