Chronic disease is a chronic illness that has a long history. Chronic disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Seven out of ten people suffer from a chronic disease.

  • Alzheimer's

Many, but not all, chronic diseases can be avoided by simple self-care. Improving and following a healthy lifestyle will almost certainly reduce the risk of chronic disease.

What can I do to prevent getting a chronic disease?

  • Routine medical check-ups are routine. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle means seeing your doctor on a regular basis. Early detection of medical issues and establishing a course of action are key

Chronic disease costs can be costly, as chronic disease is costly

Chronic illnesses have a significant effect on the United States' economy, particularly chronic diseases. We all carry the financial burden of chronic disease, whether directly or indirectly. Tax dollars can be used to fund health care and medical services, such as Medicaid and Medicare. In one family, health insurance premiums for enrollees are more expensive than in any other health condition. Chronic disease illnesses that live long lives, so treating these illnesses becomes prohibitively costly over time.

Why does chronic disease cost so much?

  • Patients require long-term care services
  • People with chronic disease sufferer can't wait until "it's too late" to seek medical attention
  • Some persistent illnesses are not covered by personal health insurance policies, which may not have policy guidelines to protect those chronic illnesses
  • There is a shortage of education to avoid chronic disease
  • Health care professionals are reluctant to prescribe preventative services based on medical history, leaving patients unable to address pre-existing conditions based on medical history
