  • Heart disease
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Hyperlipidemia

Though some long-term illnesses may resolve over time, most chronic diseases are with you for life. How you manage your chronic disease influences your current and future health.  

Why is chronic disease management important?

Chronic disease management is important because it improves symptoms and quality of life. Proper long-term disease management may also prevent or delay more serious health complications.

Medical Arts Associates P.S. is a family medicine and primary care practice providing medical care for all ages. The team understands the long-term effects of diseases and offers chronic disease management to put you back in control.

I have hypertension. When do I need chronic disease management?

You may benefit from chronic disease management as soon as you find out you have hypertension. Chronic disease management teaches you about your illness and the treatments that can improve it.

The team also provides medication management, ensuring you find the right medication and dose for your disease and monitor its effectiveness over time, making appropriate adjustments.

Lifestyle changes are also part of the management plan for long-term health conditions. This may include weight loss, diet modifications, and regular exercise. Making lifestyle changes may reduce your need for medication to treat your condition.

What can I expect from chronic disease management?

You can expect personalized care from chronic disease management with the team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. The specifics of your care depend on many factors, including diagnosis, symptoms, age, and lifestyle.

However, the team schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your health and provide the appropriate education. They may also ask you to track objective data at home, such as your blood pressure or blood glucose, so they can get a more accurate picture of how your daily routine affects your health and disease. 

Medical Arts Associates P.S.  also offers same-day visits and urgent care to help you manage your health when you have an exacerbation of your symptoms.
