Just like any other condition, disorder and disease, chronic illnesses come with many challenges that can have a big impact on people’s lives. Of course, whether you are a famous person or not, we can all be affected in the same way by them, because the disease doesn’t care about your social status or who you are. Nevertheless, we have to admit that money can make a difference though, in the sense that you can ensure yourself a carefree lifestyle with healthy foods and comprehensive medical exams (which are usually expensive), so you can prevent some diseases.
However, first of all, it is important to understand what a chronic disease means. According to health experts, chronic illnesses are long-term, often incurable diseases, with debilitating manifestations that create major discomfort and even pain, significantly affecting a person’s life. Most of the time, people who suffer from a chronic disease have to change their lifestyle and follow a treatment to control the illness for the rest of their lives.
There are a lot of illnesses that can be considered chronic, but the most common include: heart disease, stroke, cancers, depression, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic kidney disease, and so on.
