Chronic diseases are conditions or illnesses that persists for a long time, usually more than three months. Chronic diseases such as heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, obesity or respiratory conditions hinder your everyday life. Suffering from a chronic condition is already a burden and having frequent doctor visits will only add up to the stress. With ViViDoctor you can visit your doctor virtually.
The doctor can help and check up on you during treatment. Here are 3 examples your doctor can help you remotely:
- The doctor will need to check up on your health to see whether new symptoms have been popping up. These symptoms can be a common part of the chronic condition, while in some cases it could be more serious. To calm you down, the doctor can address these issues quickly through virtual visits.
- The treatment of chronic diseases usually involves lifestyle and dietary changes. In order for you to stay healthy you might have to change your habits. These behavioural changes take time to adapt and checking-in with your doctor often helps you to stay on track.
- Most likely you will receive medicines in managing your chronic condition. Getting in the right dose and mix of medications might need some trial-and-error. Your doctor can help you evaluate remotely.
