Chronic Disease Management
What is a chronic disease? A chronic disease is a condition that has a slow progression over a long period of time; chronic diseases can often be maintained with treatment.
Some chronic disease treatments include:
- Bathing for skin issues
- Flushing and medicating for ear infections
- Administering thyroid medications by oral or transdermal (through the skin) means
- Insulin injections for diabetes
- Fluid therapy for kidney issues
- Helping relieve arthritic pain with oral and injectible medications

On occasion, this means medications or fluid therapy, which may need to be routinely given at home with follow-up appointments done in the hospital. Discussing long-term care and disease management options are an important step in disease management. We are here to help you every step of the way.
