We treat patients with a range of chronic diseases. Our Dallas medical physicians can provide chronic care management for people with asthma, emphysema, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, depression, elevated cholesterol, and acne.
Signs of such conditions are detectable during annual physicals and other visits to primary care physicians. Our doctors specialize in many chronic diseases and can provide the appropriate treatment to manage and control the issue and prevent complications.
Our medical clinic is equipped and staffed to treat chronic problems such as:
A chronic lung disease, this condition is characterized by wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. Affecting people of any age, it can be caused by genetics, exposure to respiratory infections during infancy or childhood, or may develop due to allergies. There is no cure. However, asthma treatments address the factors that can aggravate the problem may reduce symptoms so that proper lung function is maintained.
Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes
In diabetic individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, blood sugar remains consistently high because insulin production is low or due to utilization being inadequate. Our internal medicine clinic can help regulate the disease with insulin and blood sugar regulation. Diet and exercise are important as well, but our physicians can also help manage high blood glucose levels that occur during pregnancy.
High blood pressure is present in millions of Americans and can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Our healthcare professionals in Dallas, TX can help manage the problem by prescribing medications and recommending lifestyle changes. They may also recommend changes in diet, increases in physical activity, and losing weight.
More than 100 forms of arthritis have been identified, affecting more than 50 million adults in the United States. Degenerative forms affect the bones and joints, while inflammatory forms are caused by changes in the immune system brought on by genetic and environmental factors. Infectious and metabolic forms exist as well. Control strategies depend on the type diagnosed. Our internal medicine doctors can formulate a control strategy depending on the type arthritis.
Gastric ulcers are sores in the stomach lining and can be painful. A peptic ulcer can cause breaks in the lining. A reduction in mucous allows digestive juices to eat away at sensitive tissues. Medications and supplements can cure the problem, but delaying ulcer management and treatment can lead to serious complications and even surgery.
Allergies are a hypersensitivity of the immune system, our internal medicine physicians in Dallas can assess your symptoms and identify the causes of your allergic condition.
