Chronic diseases are those conditions that last for a year or more, which require on-going medical attention. Chronic diseases can limit your day to day activities, and are a leading cause of death or disability around the world.

Chronic diseases include:

  • Heart disease.
  • Cancer.
  • Diabetes.
  • Chronic lung disease.
  • Chronic kidney disease.
  • Stroke.
  • Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Asthma.
  • Arthritis.

Chronic diseases are caused by:

  • Smoking or tobacco use, or exposure to second-hand smoke.
  • Poor nutrition – eating less fruits and vegetables and more fatty and salty food.
  • Insufficient or lack of physical activity.
  • Extreme use of alcohol.

Now preventing or managing the effects of a chronic disease is much easier with chronic disease management, which provides an integrated approach to managing your illness. This includes check-ups, monitoring, screening, treatment and education, and can reduce your health costs by a big margin.

You can consult doctors in Mt. Gravatt or anywhere close to where you live, to check your eligibility to get a chronic disease management plan done. If you are suffering with a chronic disease, it is most likely that your GP will recommend you one anyway.

A chronic disease management plan will:

  • Identify your health and care needs;
  • Lists out the services to be provided by your GP;
  • Lists out what you can do to help manage your illness.

There are many benefits to getting a chronic disease management plan, including:

  • Promotes healthy living.
  • Identifies your health care needs.
  • Provides continuous support.
  • It is financially helpful and provides access to certain services such as physiotherapy, dieticians etc.
