Chronic disease affects millions of Canadians per year. From chronic heart disease to cancers, mental health problems as well as autoimmune conditions like lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic disease is responsible for billions of dollars in healthcare treatment each year.

How many people are affected by chronic diseases?
Generally, incurable and ongoing chronic diseases affect approximately 133 million Americans, representing more than 40% of the total population of the country. By the end of 2020, that number is projected to grow to an estimated 157 million, with 81 million having multiple conditions!
About half of all adults have a chronic condition, and approximately 8 percent of children between 5 to 17 were reported by their parents to have limited activities due to at least one chronic disease or disability. More and more people are living with not just one chronic illness, such as diabetes, heart disease, or depression, but with two or more conditions. Almost a third of the population is now living with multiple chronic conditions.
How can I get my chronic disease diagnosed?
Simply, it depends on the condition. Many chronic conditions must be diagnosed by a specialist. However, basic chronic conditions like hypertension and migraines can be diagnosed and managed by a primary care physician. If you are having difficulty finding a diagnosis, WalkInVirtualClinics doctors can refer you to a specialist.
How effective is telemedicine in helping me manage my chronic conditions?
Many studies have shown that being able to access care online greatly increases your ability to manage your condition. The ease of access to specialists – particularly in remote areas – means that patients have greater opportunities to discuss their conditions on a regular and more frequent basis. Also, the ability to speak with a physician or specialist more frequently helps you to stick with your care plan and to get a better understanding of your condition.
