Chronic Care

What is a chronic condition?

A chronic condition is a disease that’s ongoing, causing you to need frequent medical attention for the condition and possibly limiting your ability to carry out your daily routine.

A chronic condition can be dangerous, like diabetes or heart disease, and can cause death or disability. If you suffer from a chronic condition, Dr. Dilone-Arellano is likely to urge you to consider some lifestyle changes, such as: Stop using tobacco, limit your alcohol consumption, adopt a more nutritious diet, and begin an exercise routine.

Do chronic conditions affect your quality of life?

Yes, there are certain chronic conditions that affect your quality of life, like Alzheimer’s disease or diabetes. However, there are treatment plans that can either slow the process of the disease or help you cope with the symptoms. The team at Multicultural Medical Office is dedicated to making sure you receive the best possible treatment and find solutions that work for you.

What are treatments for chronic conditions?

There are many chronic conditions with many treatment options, depending on the person and how they react to certain treatments. Alzheimer’s disease, for example, is a chronic condition that has no cure. However, there are treatment plans that can help you maintain mental function, manage behavioral changes, and slow the Alzheimer’s process. There are treatment plans for incurable conditions that Dr. Dilone-Arellano and the team at Multicultural Medical Office can help you plan and maintain.


For some chronic conditions, it’s possible to reverse the effects of the condition through diet and exercise and, sometimes, medication. Diabetes in some cases can be reversed with proper diet and exercise. Multicultural Medical Office can help you find solutions that work for you and your lifestyle.


It may help those who have chronic conditions to participate in support groups and talk to others with the same condition. These groups can help patients feel close with people going through the same process and provide an opportunity to learn more about the chronic condition. Dr. Dilone-Arellano and the team at Multicultural Medical Office are dedicated to educating and supporting you through your medical journey and is passionate about your health.
