The US Centers of Disease Control, chronic diseases cause 7 out of 10 deaths each year and are responsible for 86 percent of America's health care costs.

 

Some of the most common chronic diseases include:

Heart disease     Diabetes
Stroke      Obesity
Cancer      Arthritis

Other types of chronic conditions include:

Asthma
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
Eating disorders
Gum disease


Eventually, most adults will develop at least one chronic health problem; many will have two or more chronic diseases.

Unfortunately, these conditions can also cause other long-term complications, including kidney failure, disability and limb amputation.

 

Attention to your health and wellness can often help prevent these diseases altogether, or find the best ways to treat your condition and manage your symptoms. Through routine medical visits, we can pinpoint issues while they are manageable - sometimes even when still reversible.

 

Causes of Chronic Disease
So, what causes chronic diseases in the first place? While there are many factors including genetics, environment, and circumstances, one of the main issues is ongoing unhealthy behaviors such as:

Inactivity
Poor nutrition
Heavy alcohol use
Using tobacco


By changing these habits, you can greatly decrease your chances of developing some of these chronic illnesses.

It can be a challenge to know exactly what constitutes a healthy diet or what exercise plan is right for you. Your doctor can discuss foods you should eat, as well as foods you should avoid. They can also recommend exercise regimes that are right for your needs and abilities. This will help you maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of chronic diseases. They can even help you find programs that will aid you in quitting bad habits, like smoking and heavy drinking.

Turn to your doctor to have your chronic disease diagnosed and treated, and you can see your quality of life drastically improve. Don't hesitate - if you think you may be suffering the symptoms of a chronic disease, schedule an appointment today.
