Chronic Disease Management & Health Assessment
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. Our doctors at the Lotus Medical Centre in Brunswick, Victoria, have plenty of experience helping chronic disease patients manage their conditions and lead a satisfying life.
Don’t suffer in silence—please call us today to manage 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 our doctors 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. We 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 our doctors or general practitioners 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. Our physicians will assess the severity of your asthma and provide you with options to minimise the impact it will have on your 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. Our doctors will 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 give Lotus Medical Centre a call on (03) 9380 1588 to schedule an appointment today!
