Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What is a chronic disease?

Chronic diseases are health conditions that affect you for one full year or longer, often lasting for the rest of your life. They may or may not come with discernable symptoms, but can limit your abilities or cause damage within your body without successful management. 

At Nguyen Medical Group, Dr. Nguyen and his team can teach you about your chronic condition. They can also improve your outlook and symptoms with a customized chronic disease management plan. Successful chronic disease management can significantly improve your quality of life by minimizing your disease’s effects and helping you avoid complications.

While many chronic diseases have no cure, you can control them with the right care plan. Dr. Nguyen and his team can help you manage your illness with ongoing monitoring, lifestyle changes, and other management strategies. 

What are some chronic diseases that require management?

As an internist, Dr. Nguyen has extensive knowledge of the body and the many chronic diseases that can affect various parts of it. As you age, you might develop one or more chronic conditions that require expert management. Dr. Nguyen can help you manage:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease

If you have another disease or condition, Dr. Nguyen can tell you whether or not it is chronic and whether or not you need chronic disease management. He and his team get to know you and become familiar with your condition over time to provide better, more personalized care.  

What does chronic disease management involve?

Dr. Nguyen and his team provide exhaustive chronic disease management plans to improve your quality of life and outlook.
