Chronic Disease Q & A

What is a chronic disease?

A chronic disease is a health condition that lasts for a year or longer, and many need ongoing monitoring or care. Some of them are present from birth onward or are genetic inevitabilities. Others arise because of long-term, unhealthy behaviors like:


  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Alcoholism
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • An imbalanced or unhealthy diet


Although many chronic diseases require lifelong management, you can still live your life to the fullest with professional care. Some chronic diseases can go into remission, which is a period when you don’t have any symptoms at all. 


It’s common for chronic diseases to co-occur, and the Med Cure Clinic team can ensure you manage each of your diagnoses with coordinated care. 

What are some of the most common types of chronic disease?

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

The team teaches you everything you need to know about your diagnosis and what it means for the future. They answer your questions in detail and can refer you to trustworthy specialists if you need extra care. 

How are chronic diseases treated?


Many chronic diseases are incurable, but you can manage them with ongoing, personalized chronic disease care. The team at Med Cure Clinic coordinates your care and sees you regularly for medication management and follow-up visits. 


Lifestyle changes are typically a critical part of chronic disease care, as many unhealthy habits are associated with adverse disease outcomes. In fact, many healthy lifestyle changes can prevent certain chronic illnesses in the first place. The team encourages you to eat a nutritious, balanced diet, stop smoking, manage stress, and exercise regularly. 


Alongside changes to your lifestyle, you may need to take medications to manage a chronic disease or its specific symptoms. The team ensures you’re getting positive results from your medications and can adjust them as necessary.
