Chronic Illness

Avoid, Treat & Manage Chronic Illness

Today in the United States, chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, strokes and lung disease account for 70% of deaths. In other words, 70% of these deaths are either preventable or manageable when detected early. Hypertension, diabetes and elevated cholesterol are three large groups of conditions that contribute to chronic illness and the leading causes of death in the United States.

However, using lifestyle modifications, including nutritional changes and the judicious use of medication as needed, many of these health factors can be managed or even reversed. Chronic illness or chronic disease can be avoided, treated, and managed by a physician with the right experience, compassion and expertise.

Dr. Nunez has helped so many men and women who were suffering from a chronic disease or trying to avoid diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular or heart disease, chronic fatigue, obesity, osteoporosis and several types of cancer. These are all avoidable conditions that can needlessly rob you of your health and your life.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The consequences of chronic illness include myriad physical, mental, and social consequences that affect patients and their family members, friends, and caregivers. A person with arthritis may have 3 consequences: physical, such as chronic pain; mental, such as depression; and social, such as an inability to work.” Of course, chronic fatigue and arthritis are just two examples of how chronic disease and chronic pain can impact your life and the lives of people around you.
