Chronic Disease Management Q&A

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management includes services to control symptoms of a chronic disease and prevent them from worsening.

Dr. Narayan offers chronic disease management services to address conditions such as:

  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Although there are no cures for many chronic diseases, the right treatment plan can help you control the condition in the long term so you can live a high-quality life.

When should I schedule a chronic disease management consultation?

You should schedule a chronic disease management consultation with Dr. Narayan if you already have a disease diagnosis and need help managing your condition.

You may also benefit from chronic disease management services if you’re at high risk for a disease because of your family history or other factors.

Dr. Narayan offers diagnostic testing services on-site to evaluate your overall health and assess the severity of your disease and symptoms. Based on the results of your exam and diagnostic tests, he customizes a care plan to address your current and long-term health needs.

What can I expect during chronic disease management appointments?

You can expect to schedule regular visits for chronic disease management at D Reddy Narayan in addition to your routine primary care appointments. Dr. Narayan can determine how often you need to visit the office based on the condition you have and the nature of your symptoms.

At each visit, you may need a physical exam, bloodwork, and other diagnostic tests to assess the progression of your disease and to ensure your current treatment plan is working well. For instance, if you have diabetes, Dr. Narayan may request frequent bloodwork to evaluate your glucose levels and confirm that the medications you take are keeping your blood sugar under control.

Dr. Narayan continues to monitor your condition in the long term and makes changes to your treatment plan when necessary. He can also suggest lifestyle changes and diet improvements that support your health and resources to prevent additional complications from a chronic disease.
