Treatment of Chronic Diseases

Your doctor in Southfield, MI, can help you feel better.

When you are affected by a chronic disease, it can dramatically impact your life. Chronic diseases can deplete your body’s natural resources and impair your immune system. A chronic underlying disease can affect your body’s ability to heal, and diminish your ability to fight off illness.

Fortunately, your doctor can treat your chronic disease, and help you live a more active, healthy life. Dr. Antoine Geffrard at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, offers a wide range of healthcare services, including treatment of chronic diseases, to help you feel better.

Some of the most common chronic diseases include:

  • Obesity
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease

Your doctor will provide professional treatments that can give you relief from symptoms, and enhance your quality of life. For example:

If you are obese, the excess weight can cause stress on your joints and muscles and affect your heart function. Your doctor can help with diet and exercise management and may recommend medication or other therapies to help with your metabolism. In some cases, weight loss surgery may be recommended.

If you have arthritis, it means your joints are chronically inflamed. Persistent inflammation can eventually cause joint destruction and a considerable amount of pain. It’s common to experience loss of flexibility and joint stiffness. Your doctor can help by providing prescription-strength anti-inflammatory and pain medication. In addition to medication and physical therapy, an exercise program can help keep you moving.

If you are diabetic, your circulation, nerve sensation, and ability to heal may all be affected. Diet modification and medications to control blood sugar are treatments that can help you manage your diabetes.

These are just a few of the many ways your doctor can help treat your chronic diseases. To learn more about chronic disease causes, symptoms, and treatment, call Dr.Geffrard of RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, at (248) 663-5353 today!
