Why Treat a Chronic Disease When You Can Prevent It?
A young adult can take control of his or her health before the person progresses to developing a chronic disease, or even several. Chronic diseases include health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Having a family history of any of these conditions may increase one’s risk of developing these conditions in the future if the person does not adhere to practicing a healthy lifestyle.
Weight and Chronic Disease
According to the CDC, 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 adults in the United States currently have at least 2 chronic diseases. Not only does having a chronic disease lead to obvious health issues, but the cost of treating these conditions throughout one’s life causes more stress, which can further affect one’s health. Our weight loss program helps patients reach a manageable and healthy weight to prevent them from becoming part of the previously mentioned statistics.
Developing a healthy lifestyle may seem like a daunting task when an individual is already overweight. It is far easier said than done. Managing one’s weight is a great place to start when wanting to work on preventing chronic diseases or the progression of a chronic disease.
