Chronic Care Management Q & A

What conditions require ongoing care?

Most people are diagnosed with at least one chronic condition during their lifetime. Chronic conditions can last for several months or years. In some cases, your chronic disease can persist for the rest of your life.

Chronic conditions include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Kidney disease
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Living with a chronic disease can be a burden. But these conditions aren't always life-threatening. Many people with a chronic condition can remain active and live mostly normal lives.

But if you have an ongoing health concern, you need regular medical care. At Indus Healthcare, you work with an experienced physician. Your provider helps you manage your chronic condition.

How can I manage my chronic condition?

Many chronic conditions need surgery or prescription medication. In some cases, alternative therapies can also provide some relief. Your provider can explain your treatment options. Once you choose your treatment, the Indus Healthcare team helps you access the care you need.

As part of your treatment plan, you could receive regular blood or imaging tests. You might also need frequent checkups. After each visit, the office staff can arrange any upcoming tests and exams.

But keep in mind that some chronic conditions do get worse over time. If you notice new symptoms, don't wait until your next scheduled appointment, but notify your Indus Healthcare provider right away.

Your provider can schedule a comprehensive exam. If you need to change your treatment plan, your provider will explain your next step.

How can I learn more about my chronic condition?

Education is a vital part of managing your chronic condition. The Indus Healthcare team strives to help each patient understand their health needs. They provide the information you need to stay active and avoid complications.

During each visit, your provider lets you know what's causing your symptoms. They also review the risks and benefits of the available treatments. As you undergo treatment, your provider continues to answer your questions and address your concerns.

Many chronic conditions also respond well to lifestyle changes. Losing weight, altering your diet, and increasing your activity levels could improve your health. Your provider can help you create a lifestyle plan that eases your symptoms.
