Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What does chronic disease management treat?

Chronic disease affects your health on a long-term basis, and it can get worse as time passes. Chronic disease management can help slow down the progression of your condition and control your symptoms. 

Your doctor can’t heal your chronic disease at the root of the problem, but the team at Family Health Center of Bastrop uses their expertise to help manage your symptoms effectively to keep your life as healthy as possible.

As chronic disease management begins to relieve your symptoms, you’re encouraged to practice healthy daily routines to enhance your quality of life. For example, stay active, eat well, don’t smoke, and limit your alcohol intake. 

For advice on how to improve your health, talk to your doctor about your daily routine.
