Chronic Care Management Q&A

Who needs chronic care management?

If you have a chronic illness due to controllable factors, or if you’re struggling with hypertension or high cholesterol, chronic care management can help you improve your health overall. 

At MUST Clinic, Dr. Stallings treats children and adults aged 12 and up, guiding all aspects of health to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and preventable illnesses like type 2 diabetes.

How does chronic care management work?

With chronic care management, Dr. Stallings works hand-in-hand with you to improve your health by managing key components, including:

Blood pressure

High blood pressure (hypertension) can cause widespread damage to your heart, brain, kidneys, eyes, and other organs. Uncontrolled hypertension can also lead to heart attack, heart failure, and stroke. 

Dr. Stallings can help you reduce your blood pressure and improve your health. Hypertension management focuses on dietary changes, exercise, weight loss, stress management, and medication, if needed. 

Cholesterol

High cholesterol is a leading risk factor for heart disease and often contributes to stroke. Fortunately, you can control your cholesterol level with help from Dr. Stallings. 

She recommends a combination of diet, weight loss if needed, exercise, and medication to reduce your cholesterol. She uses more than one class of medication to reliably reduce your cholesterol. 

By managing your blood pressure and cholesterol levels effectively, you can greatly reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke, and even death. Chronic care management can also help reduce your risk for chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes. 

How do I access chronic care management?

When you have high cholesterol, hypertension, or both, regular monitoring and medical management is the key to wellness and disease prevention. Dr. Stallings recommends a chronic care management schedule for your unique circumstances and needs. 

To make chronic care management as convenient as possible, MUST Clinic offers a mobile clinic with flexible scheduling at locations throughout the Piedmont Triad area. They provide virtual visits or can travel to you.

In 2020, COVID-19 changed health care access methods, which is why your appointments now begin with a phone visit. Furthermore, the mobile clinic is thoroughly clean and sanitized to keep patients safe.

At MUST Clinic, chronic care management is easily accessible and essential to your long-term health. Call the mobile clinic or book a visit through online scheduling.
