The Best Places to Get Education About Your Health
Most adults have at least one chronic health condition. Chronic health conditions include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity. While getting advice from your doctor is always very important, it is also very important that you educate yourself about your conditions.
Sometimes, it can be difficult and downright overwhelming to keep track of what you should and should not do when you have a health condition. This becomes even more complex when you have multiple medical conditions that you must balance and manage. So, where can you get information and stay up to date on your conditions?
Your number one source of information regarding your health should always be your primary care provider. Here at Natesan Medical Group, our team of experienced Physicians, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners are always ready to talk to you about your health conditions. They can give you advice about medications, diet changes, and good lifestyle habits to follow.
Another great source of information about various medical conditions is the CDC website. Simply follow the link, and search for your health condition to get the most up to date information available.
If you need information about your specific heath condition, sometimes the best place to go is a website or organization dedicated to that condition. For example, http://www.diabetes.org is a great site to learn about Type II Diabetes, and it is sponsored by the American Diabetes Association. To learn more about high blood pressure, the American Heart Association is a wealth of knowledge. Linked below are more disease-specific resources.
