According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, four out of 10 Americans have two or more chronic diseases. A chronic disease that persists for a year or longer and requires ongoing medical care, restricts daily activities or does all of the above. Dr. Paul Keinarth and Dr. Kelly Alberda of Family Health Center in Austin, TX are devoted to helping you remain in optimal shape.
Are You Dealing With a Chronic Disease?
A chronic disease has symptoms that linger or are persistent for three months. For a person with a chronic condition, symptoms can be crippling because they impact their mental, physical, and emotional health. For instance, waking up every day in pain from sciatica-related chronic hip pain may cause negative thoughts, depressed moods, and changes in appetite. In addition to making it difficult for you to sleep, focus, remember, or make decisions, chronic pain from a chronic disease can also make you lose interest in previously enjoyable activities.
