What are chronic health conditions?
Chronic health conditions are long-term illnesses that are expected to last longer than a year. Acute conditions can be severe, but they’re generally short-lived and you recover within a few days or a few weeks. Chronic conditions can be lifelong and may require significant lifestyle changes to manage effectively.
Some chronic health conditions are more common than others, including:
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
These conditions can have similar risk factors. That means if you have one, you may be more likely to have multiple chronic illnesses.
The conflicting advice from different health care professionals, multiple medications, and more can make navigating multiple health conditions a challenge.
