Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases are noncontagious, persistent diseases that can be stable or change over time.

Chronic diseases have many different causes. While chronic diseases are usually avoidable, they cannot be definitively cured. It is possible, however, to control the symptoms or the disease's progression.

Fortunately, chronic diseases are usually preventable and their symptoms and evolution can be better controlled. Learn how to better control chronic deseases >
