Chronic Disease Management

Heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and vascular disease are the primary causes of ill health in the United States and around the world.

These are among the chronic diseases impacting 133 million Americans, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and accounting for nearly seven out of 10 American deaths each year.

Too often, people with chronic disease think that they are free from the illness when they have no symptoms. Having no symptoms, however, doesn’t mean that chronic disease has disappeared.

There’s good news, though. Chronic disease can be prevented or controlled through 1) regular physical activity, 2) eating healthy, 3) not smoking, and 4) avoiding excessive alcohol consumption.

Early diagnosis is vital to managing chronic diseases. Talk to a Genesis physician regarding more information about chronic diseases and to learn effective disease prevention and management techniques.
