Understanding Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases are broadly characterized as conditions that persist for a year or more, requiring ongoing medical attention and often limit activities of daily living. These conditions can significantly affect a person’s daily life, restricting their activities or necessitating specific medications or use of medical equipment. The type and severity of chronic diseases vary widely, with each patient’s unique condition requiring a personalized approach to their care.

At Total Care Medical Centers, we offer comprehensive treatment for an array of chronic health conditions. While many chronic diseases demand lifelong attention, we believe you can enjoy an improved quality of life through a comprehensive management plan, supervised and executed by our experienced doctors.

Dealing with Common Chronic Diseases

Our team at Total Care Medical Centers is highly experienced in providing medical care and health management for a wide variety of chronic health conditions prevalent among Floridians. Conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, obesity, asthma, and other health concerns often hinder people’s daily lives. However, our doctors are well-equipped to help mitigate these issues with a treatment plan designed specifically for each patient’s needs.

We offer lifestyle support for patients with diabetes, continuous care for individuals with degenerative arthritis, and provide exceptional ongoing care for patients with smoking-related diseases or asthma. Our compassionate providers are committed to designing a treatment protocol tailored to your individual needs. We also assist patients with the management of conditions such as:

  • Cardiovascular Diseases: This includes conditions like coronary artery disease, heart failure, and hypertension, which require lifelong management to control symptoms and prevent complications.
  • Diabetes: Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are chronic diseases that require consistent monitoring and management to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
  • Chronic Respiratory Diseases: These include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis, which require regular medical management.
  • Arthritis: Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are chronic conditions that cause joint pain and inflammation, requiring ongoing treatment.
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD): CKD is a condition characterized by gradual loss of kidney function over time and requires regular monitoring and treatment to slow its progression.
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias: These neurodegenerative disorders lead to progressive cognitive decline, requiring ongoing management to optimize patients’ quality of life.
  • Cancer: While some cancers may be curable, others require ongoing treatment and management, particularly in the chronic or advanced stages.
  • HIV/AIDS: Though it can be managed effectively with antiretroviral therapy, HIV/AIDS is a chronic condition that requires consistent medical care.
  • Obesity: A chronic disease often associated with other conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It requires long-term lifestyle changes and sometimes medical intervention for effective management.
  • Depression: As a chronic mental health condition, depression often requires ongoing treatment with psychotherapy, medication, or both.
  • Chronic Pain Syndromes: Conditions like fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, or neuropathy often require long-term pain management strategies, which can include medication, physical therapy, and other approaches.
  • Autoimmune Diseases: Conditions such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel disease (like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) are lifelong diseases that can have periods of remission and flare-up.
  • Hepatitis B and C: Both of these are viral infections that affect the liver. Some people with chronic hepatitis can manage their condition with lifestyle changes, while others may need antiviral medications.
  • Osteoporosis: This is a bone disease characterized by decreased bone mass and increased risk of fractures. Ongoing management typically includes medication, a healthy diet, and weight-bearing exercise.
