Chronic disease can affect every aspect of your life, from your ability to work and socialise to long-lasting health impacts. Living with a chronic condition can be isolating and stressful, and it may result in significant, unwanted changes in your lifestyle.
Luckily, you don’t have to face your chronic condition on your own. The doctors consulting at the Lotus Medical Centre in Brunswick, Victoria, have plenty of experience helping their chronic disease patients manage their conditions and lead a satisfying life.
Don’t suffer in silence—please call us today to book an appointment with your doctor to discuss managing your chronic condition!
Chronic pain has numerous causes, some less understood than others. No single treatment is enough to manage chronic pain, which is why your doctor will work with you to develop a management plan that works for you.
Diabetes Assessment and Management
Diabetes can have a massive impact on your life and health. Your doctor can provide comprehensive care to assess your condition and create a management plan to help you manage it. Our nurse-educators can help you understand the disease and how it can affect you, while your doctor will provide regular health checks to ensure you’re on the right track.
Asthma Assessment and Management
Asthma can be debilitating, but several treatment options allow patients to lead a normal life. The doctors we support will assess the severity of their patient’s asthma and provide their patients with options to minimise the impact it will have on their life. These can include long-term control medications and learning to recognise when an attack is imminent and how to deal with it.
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, increases your chance of cardiovascular disease. Your doctors can provide you with a tailored plan that will include dietary and exercise guidelines and any other treatment options to help you manage your condition.
Elevated cholesterol can clog arteries and result in coronary heart disease. While some factors that cause high cholesterol are intrinsic, there are many external factors that you can control to manage the condition, including dietary changes and increased exercise.
Leaving chronic conditions unmanaged can result in significant health impacts in the future. If you’re suffering from a chronic disease, please book an appointment with your doctor by calling (03) 9380 1588!
