Chronic Illness

Chronic illness refers to medical conditions that persist for an extended period, typically more than three months, and often have no cure. Unlike acute illnesses, which have a short duration and specific treatment plans, chronic illnesses require ongoing management to control symptoms and improve quality of life. Chronic illnesses can be physical, such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis, or mental, such as depression or anxiety disorders. Managing chronic illness involves a combination of medical treatments, lifestyle changes, and psychological support. Patient education and self-management play a vital role in helping individuals cope with the challenges of living with chronic illness and maintaining their well-being.
