Chronic Disease Management: Innovations in Primary Care

When you are dealing with a chronic disease, it’s important to get help from an expert, your primary care provider. Our provider Florence Odubayo, FNP at Exceptional Primary & Preventive Healthcare in Silver Spring, MD, provides a full range of medical services, including chronic disease management.

How Your Primary Care Provider Can Help with Chronic Disease Management

A chronic disease can cause problems in multiple body areas, including your:

  • Bones and joints
  • Organs and tissues
  • Immune system
  • Circulatory system
  • Nervous system

Chronic diseases are medical conditions you learn to live with and manage. They may get better or worse over time, which may mean you need to change your daily routine, diet, exercise program, and other factors.

Your primary care provider plays a critical role in chronic disease diagnosis, treatment, and management. To aid in diagnosis, your primary care provider may order and review various diagnostic tests, including lab work to measure cholesterol, blood sugar levels, and other factors, and imaging studies, such as x-rays, MRI, and CT scans.

Depending on the diagnosis, your primary care provider can treat your condition or may refer you to a specialist for additional treatment options. To treat your condition, your primary care provider may prescribe:

  • Medications, to reduce inflammation and pain, enhance organ function, and provide other benefits
  • Exercise and physical therapy, to increase strength, improve flexibility, maintain mobility, and decrease stiffness
  • Surgery, to remove, repair, or replace damaged or infected tissue

To manage your chronic disease, your primary care provider will want to monitor you regularly with routine wellness visits and yearly physicals. Regular monitoring helps ensure you are feeling your best, and living your healthiest life.
