Hypertension Hepatitis Diabetes HIV

“HIV.” “Diabetes.” “Hepatitis.” Hypertension.” Your doctor's diagnosis sometimes comes as a shock, especially if it happens to be a chronic medical condition that will require life-long management. Most times, you "feel" so healthy, you didn't think you could ever be diagnosed with a chronic disease.  


First, you have to realise that a chronic disease diagnosis is NOT a death sentence. Identifying the disease is the first step to keeping its activity in your body at extremely low levels, low enough to keep the quality of your life high. 

Here's how to live a long, healthy life with a chronic disease 

  • You must a positive outlook. 
  • Keep in constant contact with your primary healthcare provider and never miss an appointment with your secondary healthcare provider. 
  • Use your medications as prescribed and take your routine tests when necessary 
  • If you notice any new symptom, talk to your doctor about it as soon as possible 

Have an accountability partner – someone you can boldly confide in about your condition and have them hold you accountable with regards your medications, appointments and all else that relates to your health.
