Chronic Disease Management Q&A

What are chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases are health problems that continue for over a year and require continuous care. They can limit your ability to live your life as you’d like. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, six out of 10 adults in the United States have some form of chronic disease.


There are many forms of chronic disease, each affecting your body differently. A few of the more prevalent forms of chronic disease are:


  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic lung disease


Although chronic diseases can be partly due to genetics, they’re often caused by poor lifestyle choices. These choices include poor nutrition, tobacco use, and lack of exercise or physical activity.

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management is a tool Dr. Tavassoli uses to reduce the long-term effects of the disease on her patients through an integrated health care approach.


The primary goal of chronic disease management is to reduce the overall cost of the disease by improving the health of the individual with the chronic problem. Frequent check-ins and collaborative health care ensure better outcomes with this program.


Another goal of chronic disease management is slowing down the worsening of the disease. This helps you live a healthier, more active life while keeping your condition under control.

What’s involved in chronic disease management?

Dr. Tavassoli uses a multidisciplinary approach to treating your chronic disease. This means using every resource available to get you the health care and medication you need to prevent further complications from your condition.


Several processes for chronic disease management are in place to give you a positive outcome. Some of these are:


  • Access to preventative care
  • Medication management programs
  • Frequent in-office evaluations
  • Self-management tools
  • Personalized care plan


A good chronic disease management program allows you to keep your condition under control while lowering your health care costs. This is done by reducing complications from your disease with early treatment.


If you’re dealing with a chronic disease, getting it under control is the best way to ensure you live a long, healthy life. Dr. Tavassoli provides chronic disease management programs to allow you to worry less about your health.
