What is chronic disease?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chronic diseases are conditions that last for one year or longer, require ongoing care, and/or limit your daily activities. Chronic disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States.

Some health conditions categorized as chronic disease include:

  • Asthma
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Stroke
  • Osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Kidney disease

These are just a few of the health conditions considered to be chronic diseases, however, there are many more.  

Why is chronic disease management so important?

Chronic disease management is the process of managing the symptoms of your health condition to enable you to live a full and active life. With proper care, you may be able to slow the progression of your disease, or in some cases, even reverse the effects. 

Because chronic disease can have such a huge impact on your daily quality of life and even shorten your life, managing your condition is one of the most impactful things that you can do for your overall health and wellness. 

If you’re living with more than one chronic disease, management is even more important. The treatments for some health conditions can worsen others, so working hand-in-hand with a skilled medical provider is the best way to meet all of your health needs. 

What are some options for improving chronic disease?

One of the most important aspects of chronic disease care is medication management. Having a medical professional assess your current drug therapy and how it is working to control your symptoms is the starting point. 

If adjustments need to be made, they’ll be done thoughtfully. As you progress in treatment, you may eventually need to reduce dosage or stop some medications entirely. 

Making meaningful and sustainable lifestyle improvements is one of the best things you can do to manage chronic disease. At More Than Medical Wellness, you’ll learn how nutrition, wellness and IV nutrition therapy can enhance your quality of life and improve your chronic disease. You’ll also explore ways to reduce stress and boost sleep quality.
