Chronic diseases are medical conditions that last one year or more. They require ongoing medical attention, limiting regular activities, and affect quality of life. Their management improves quality of life, decreases disease burden, and elevates community health.
The most common chronic conditions encountered in daily practice include high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia.
Hypertension is a leading cause of stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure. High blood pressure or hypertension is quite common in all ages and is mostly asymptomatic. If left untreated, it can cause damage to the brain, heart, kidneys, and blood vessels. Adopting a healthy lifestyle includes regular exercise restricting salt and processed foods to reduce the incidence of hypertension.
High blood sugar or Diabetes mellitus is due to inadequate action of insulin in our body. It can cause general symptoms such as fatigue, frequent infections, frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased appetite. If untreated, it can damage the brain, heart, kidneys, nerves, eyes, and blood vessels. Management includes adopting a healthy lifestyle, regular physical exercise, and medications as needed.
Hyperlipidemia or elevated blood cholesterolAbout (fat cells) along with Obesity (excessive or overweight) are lifestyle diseases. Both can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, stroke, diabetes type 2, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, and sexual dysfunction.
