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 types of chronic diseases include:

  • Dermatological conditions
  • Kidney disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Degenerative joint disease

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.
