Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What are chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases are medical conditions that last longer than a year and require continual treatment. According to the Centers for Disease Control, six out of ten adults in the United States have at least one type of chronic disease that impacts their lives.

These diseases often affect your quality of life and may lead to the need for ongoing medication treatment or hospitalization. Common chronic diseases include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease

At The Vine Medical Clinic, the team offers chronic disease management for these conditions. That includes treatment strategies and specialized therapy to help you get your condition under control.

Often, chronic diseases can take over your life. Fortunately, The Vine Medical Clinic team offers different modes of treatment and a chance to become healthier.

How are chronic diseases treated?

Chronic diseases have the potential to be hazardous to your overall health. Because these conditions last for years, they can take a toll on your organs and your body. This may lead to even more severe conditions that lead to dangerous consequences. 

The team offers personalized treatment for diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. After performing a physical exam, they determine what type of treatment you need for your specific condition. Treatment avenues may include:

  • Medications
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Weight loss
  • Physical therapy

At The Vine Medical Clinic, the team offers many treatment options for your chronic disease. Treatment and management take time, but the team is with you every step of the way.

Are you at risk of chronic diseases?

Several risk factors make it more likely that you’ll end up with a chronic disease. The Vine Medical Clinic team helps you determine if your risk is elevated for these conditions so you can take the steps you need to improve your overall health.

What risk factors play a role in the likelihood of you developing one of these conditions? Some of the modifiable risk factors linked to chronic disease include:

  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Poor nutrition
  • Physical inactivity

Your weight also can play a role. Excess weight paired with your family history may increase your overall risk of chronic diseases. The team at The Vine Medical Center helps you recognize your risk for chronic disease so you can begin the path to a healthier future.
