Yes! For example, if you have a health condition like high blood pressure, preventive medicine can reduce your risk for complications like heart attack and stroke. In some cases, working with the team at LiveWell Med Solutions may return your blood pressure to normal levels and help you live a longer, more active life.
Another way preventive medicine can help with chronic conditions is to decrease the risk for additional health problems, known as comorbidities, that often occur in people with that condition.
For instance, people with high blood pressure are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than those with normal blood pressure. Preventive medicine at LiveWell Med Solutions covers all aspects of your health in order to minimize disease risk factors.
