Chronic Disease Management Q&A

What should I know about chronic disease management?

Chronic Disease Management, also called Chronic Care Management, is a medical service that helps you manage your long-term health. Chronic disease management aims to minimize symptoms, prevent or delay the disease’s progression, and improve overall health.

When managing a chronic health condition, you need a provider who fully understands your health concerns and goals. 

At Brunswick Medical, we manage many chronic health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Kidney disease
  • Dementia

My blood pressure is good. Why do I need chronic disease management?

Chronic diseases are long-term health problems that remain with you for life, and treatment plans often need adjustments over time.

Chronic disease management at Brunswick Medical offers the ongoing monitoring and support you need to stay in control of your high blood pressure and overall health.

At Brunswick Medical, we specialize in senior and geriatric care. It’s not unusual for older adults to have more than one chronic health condition, some of which may require several medications. Our medical practice closely evaluates treatment plans, including overall lifestyle, to ensure that all therapies and prescriptions are effective and even eliminating medications when appropriate.

What can I expect from chronic disease management?

You can expect personalized,  patient-centered chronic disease management at Brunswick Medical.  Often plans are created by conducting a thorough medical history along with a physical exam and  lab tests, to evaluate your health and potential problems related to your chronic disease.

At Brunswick Medical we take the time to clearly educate our patients about any disease they may currently have or be at risk for.   While medication may be part of any treatment plan, we discuss possible lifestyle changes you can make to benefit your well-being and help you manage your disease.
