What is Chronic Care Management?

Almost one in three of us — especially as we get older — find ourselves living with some type of “chronic” illness, a disease that we learn to manage so it doesn’t interfere too much with our day-to-day activities. And when the disease does flare up, we can treat the symptoms without too much disruption. The best way to stay ahead of a chronic illness like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and similar diseases is to work with a healthcare provider to develop a plan that will help you manage symptoms and prevent new problems. Your healthcare provider at NY Family Docs will work with you to develop a chronic care management plan. For more information, call the office nearest you or schedule an appointment online.

Chronic Care
Q & A

What are chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases are health issues that last over a long period of time and require you to pay attention: Take your meds, talk to your doctor, and seek medical treatment if things get worse. These illnesses, when not treated, interfere with daily activities and can affect your health and independence.

What are some symptoms of chronic diseases?

Many chronic diseases are known as silent killers because they have no clear symptoms. Patients who suffer from them may not realize that they have a disease. Instead, they may just have a feeling that something is wrong.

Early diagnosis is an important part of managing chronic diseases, so even if you aren’t experiencing major symptoms, it’s important to get regular checkups. A good healthcare provider can spot things you don’t notice, and blood work, taken right in our office, can find problems, too.

How can I prevent chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases often develop from lifestyle choices. By making some small adjustments, you significantly reduce your chances of developing these issues. Some risky behaviors to avoid are:

blank
Tobacco Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable early deaths in the United States, and quitting greatly reduces your risk of diseases caused by smoking. You will also feel healthier.
blank
Drinking too much alcohol Excessive alcohol use is responsible for 1 in 10 deaths in American adults. Too much drinking increases the chance of liver damage, cancer, reproductive issues, and much more.
blank
Not exercising regularly Not only does regular exercise help prevent chronic diseases, but it also has many immediate benefits like improving your mood, boosting energy, and promoting a healthy appetite and better sleep. Who doesn’t want that?
blank
Not sleeping enough Continuous sleep loss increases your chances of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. It's recommended to get 8 hours of sleep each night.
blank
Eating healthy Avoid foods with saturated fats and increase the amount of fiber and unsaturated fats that you eat. Your provider at NY Family Docs can identify good eating habits.
blank
Inherited diseases Chronic diseases can run in families. If your parents, brothers or sisters, or even aunts and uncles ever had a chronic disease, you should get regular screenings to catch symptoms early. To get a physical that will assess you for any chronic conditions, call the office nearest you or schedule an appointment online.
