Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management is a health care service that focuses on treating chronic diseases and preventing complications that can affect your long-term health.

Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville Internist medical team diagnose and treat a variety of complex chronic diseases including:

  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disease
  • Heart conditions
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

The providers focus on identifying signs of disease in the earliest stages and customize a treatment plan to manage your symptoms. The team also works closely with you on a long-term basis to ensure your condition is well-controlled and to minimize your risk factors for serious health complications.

What chronic disease management services are available?

If you have an existing chronic disease, such as a thyroid disorder, diabetes, or a lung disease, Dr. Marwaha and the medical team take time to review your medical history. Through a physical exam and diagnostic testing, the team assesses the severity of your condition and determines the best course of treatment for your needs.

When you have risk factors for a chronic disease, such as a family history of skin cancer or uncontrolled blood sugar levels, Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville Internist providers may suggest routine screenings to identify early warning signs of disease before you even have symptoms. 

Screenings may involve diagnostic imaging tests like X-rays or bloodwork to evaluate your general health.

Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville Internist providers can prescribe medications or other therapies to treat the disease. They continue to monitor your treatment in the long term and can work with you on lifestyle changes, nutritional counseling, and fitness regimens to improve and protect your health.

What are the benefits of chronic disease management services?

When you have a chronic disease, it’s important that you receive timely treatments and routine checkups that cater to your individual needs. This is especially true if you have to manage more than one type of chronic disease. 

Through chronic disease management services, Dr. Marwaha and the medical team provide continuity in care to ensure the disease and its symptoms are always under control. The providers carefully monitor your treatment and can make changes as necessary to promote good health. 

If you’re unable to travel to the office because of health limitations, Dr. Marwaha and the team can also visit with you virtually through their telemedicine platform. They also provide chronic disease management services in your own home or at the hospital if necessary.
