Chronic Disease Management Q&A

What does it mean to have a chronic disease?

Having a chronic disease means you have a health condition that lasts a year or more and requires ongoing medical monitoring or limits your ability to go about your usual routine. Chronic diseases are usually with you for life and may put you at risk of developing other health concerns.

You can develop a chronic disease at any age, but your risk increases as you get older. It’s common for older adults to have more than one long-term health condition and take multiple prescription medications. 

Su Clinica Medical Group is a general care practice offering comprehensive and accessible chronic care management for the diverse community. The team treats all chronic health conditions including the following:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic skin conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Lung disease

The team takes a whole-person approach to care, managing your whole health not your disease or symptoms. 

Do I need chronic disease management if my blood pressure is good?

Your primary care provider at Su Clinica Medical Group can talk to you about chronic care management for your high blood pressure. But you still may benefit from the personalized care even if your blood pressure is in the normal range.

Chronic diseases change over time and require your active involvement. Ongoing monitoring helps your provider keep track of your health to ensure your current plan is working. It also allows your provider to make adjustments to your plan that benefit your current and future health. 

What can I expect from chronic disease management?

You can expect patient-centered chronic disease management from the team at Su Clinica Medical Group. The details of your care depend on your medical history, symptoms, and personal goals. 

Your provider reviews your concerns and treatment plan and completes a physical exam. They do onsite lab draws and feature a hemoglobin A1C (A1C) machine to monitor blood sugar for people with diabetes. 

They discuss your health in a way that makes it easy to understand. They also provide lifestyle education that helps you better manage your health at home. The team includes bilingual health professionals who speak English and Spanish. 

Su Clinica Medical Group offers services for private pay, Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Covered California, and most PPO health insurance plans.
