Chronic Diseases

Diseases are called chronic if they are persistent and last lifelong. These diseases are among the most prevalent and preventable of all diseases. Chronic diseases, as a group, contribute most widely to death, illness and disability globally; they can be treated effectively, but need regular follow-up by doctors to monitor side effects caused by medication, changes in the medical condition and any associated physical as well as physiological damage. Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Blood Cholesterol, Obesity, Asthma/ Chronic Obstructive Airway Diseases, etc. are all treated under this specialty. Chronic diseases may not harm a person straight away, but they may lead to sudden death or reduce a person’s quality of life significantly with debilitating illnesses like a stroke, heart attack, organ failure (kidney, heart, etc.) and cancer.

Diabetes

Diabetes is the cause of one in 10 deaths of an adult between the ages of 24 to 65. It is one of the major causes of ill health and premature mortality worldwide. A person with diabetes has a three-fold increased chance of mortality, usually due to cardiovascular diseases. Diabetes is characterized by high blood glucose level due to a lack of insulin secretion, resistance to insulin action, or both. Insulin is a hormone that is secreted by special cells in an important organ called the pancreas. Diabetic patients are already having vascular damage to their body as early as five years prior to the onset of the symptomatic disease.

This pre-diabetic state is medically classified into two groups:-

  • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
  • Impaired Fasting Glycaemia; every year between 2-5% of the patients in this group become diabetic
 

Dyslipidaemia

Cardiovascular diseases, especially coronary heart disease, are the major cause of dyslipidaemia. In terms of mortality, dyslipidaemia is ranked second only to cancer. Dyslipidaemia is a description of a group of biochemical disorders that include several lipid abnormalities i.e., good cholesterol (HDL) being too low and bad cholesterol (LDL) as well as triglycerides being too high. Multiple clinical trials worldwide have consistently shown the reduction of cardiovascular diseases by lowering LDL and improving HDL. The risk factor of each individual is determined by one’s lifestyle and diet, as well as family history. Similarly, the target treatment level for each lipid molecule differs between individuals and is influenced by other existing medical conditions or social habits such as smoking or alcohol consumption.

Hypertension

Hypertension is a condition characterized by the persistent elevation of blood pressures. High blood pressure levels are closely related to the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. It is one of the main causes of strokes, heart attacks as well as failure of cardinal organs such as heart and kidney.

While there are good levels of public awareness regarding hypertension, awareness of its complications is still lacking. This may very well reflect upon why 50% of patients who are treated for hypertension are actually well controlled. Blood pressure is the pressure of blood in the arteries. When it is high, it can cause strain to the blood vessels, which can in turn lead to damage of the vessel lining and eventual narrowing of them. The result is damage to the organs i.e. the heart, the brain and the kidney (the target organs). As the target organs are under threat, it is important that doctors not only control a patient’s blood pressure, but also monitor for early signs of target organ damage.
