How does chronic disease management work?

Chronic disease management involves regular visits with the Elshaddai Clinic team. The empathetic specialists provide:

Lifestyle guidance

Lifestyle choices are crucially important in chronic disease management. The team helps you find a healthy diet, regular exercise plan, and other specific ways to help manage your disease. 

With some diseases, like Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, your lifestyle choices might be enough to control your disease. But, for other conditions, you may need lifestyle changes and medication combined.

Medication management

At Elshaddai Clinic, the team provides medications for your condition based on your specific needs. This includes oral medications, inhalers, insulin, supplemental oxygen, medical devices, and every type of medication people with chronic illnesses may need. 

Medication management isn’t just about the first prescription: The team sees you for regular 20-minute appointments to check how the medication is helping you and make any necessary changes. 

The team believes that managing chronic disease requires an ongoing partnership between you and them. They get to know you as a person so they can support you in dealing with your chronic disease in the best way.
