What is a Chronic Condition?

There are some conditions that stay with you for a long time—we call these chronic conditions. Chronic conditions can progressively get worse over time, or they can come and go over the months or years.

Some of the most common chronic conditions people live with include:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Kidney disease

Having a chronic condition can be frustrating, exhausting, and feel hopeless at times. If you live with a chronic condition that is interfering with your life, know that there are options for making it manageable. There is a way to live the life you want and not miss out on important life events, even with a chronic condition.
