Chronic Disease Management Q&A

What is chronic disease management?


Chronic disease management is a personalized health plan that provides ongoing care for long-term conditions. Chronic diseases last for one year or longer, often for a lifetime. Most long-lasting diseases affect your daily function and get worse without responsive treatment.


Chronic disease management goes beyond treating symptoms and addresses the broader aspects of caring for these conditions over an extended period. 


At TruWellness, Kelly collaborates with you, specialists, and other members of your care team to develop a personalized plan that considers your unique needs, goals, and preferences.

Who can benefit from chronic disease management?

Anybody with a chronic disease can benefit from ongoing care. Kelly may recommend creating your personalized plan if you have a chronic disease like:


Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that develops when your body can’t process glucose (sugar) efficiently. Without effective blood sugar management, glucose can build in your blood and cause complications like nerve damage, vision problems, and kidney issues.


Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is when the force of blood hitting your artery walls is consistently too high. This can lead to complications like heart disease, stroke, and kidney damage.

High cholesterol

Cholesterol is a waxy, fatty substance in your blood. While it's necessary for making cells and hormones, too much cholesterol can form plaques that narrow and harden the arteries. High cholesterol is a key risk factor for heart disease and other serious health complications.

Heart disease

Heart disease covers a range of conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels. These conditions can include coronary artery disease, heart failure, and arrhythmias.


Arthritis is chronic joint inflammation that typically progresses with age. It causes painful, swollen, red, stiff joints that lose their range of motion as the condition advances.
