Chronic Diseases
We know that sometimes the unexpected happens and you might need medical care for a number of reasons. Because of this, we offer a variety of services, making us a one-stop-shop for many of your treatment needs. This includes assessing chronic diseases, treating diabetes, and administering exams including the DOT exam.

Chronic Disease

El Paso Family and Pediatric assists patients, both adults and children, with chronic disease treatment. This includes some of the more common diseases like heart disease, asthma, and cystic fibrosis, just to name a few. We understand that suffering from a chronic disease can place a burden on your life. Our practitioners will help you maintain a high quality of life by providing extensive care.

Chronic diseases come in all shapes and sizes. Not one is treated the same way as another. At El Paso Family and Pediatric, we monitor what you need and provide care specific to what you are experiencing.

Heart Disease

Heart disease can cause a large disruption in your life and is, unfortunately, pretty common. People suffer from heart disease when their vessels become narrow or blocked, which can also lead to a heart attack. Typically, heart disease is treated with medications, low red meat diets, and surgeries. If treated early, heart disease can be prevented, reduced, or even cured.

As a pediatric clinic, we also see many children with asthma symptoms. Asthma affects breathing and is potentially dangerous. We’ll ensure that your child gets the proper care they need to combat asthma.

Other common chronic illnesses we can help with include cystic fibrosis, arthritis, and even eating disorders. We promise to provide you with the best care.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a common chronic disease here in El Paso. It can affect anyone, old or young, and it’s important to take good care of yourself to better fight it. We help our diabetic patients by providing options that best suit them as well as creating plans to maintain a healthier lifestyle. Depending on the type of diabetes you have, we can help in a number of ways.

The first step to maintaining a better lifestyle with diabetes is receiving a proper diagnosis. We can help you learn what type you have, so you can better assess what you should do. The most common type of diabetes is Type 2. When you have type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t use insulin like it should. Essentially, it develops an insulin resistance.

Luckily, there are multiple steps you can take to get your life back on track. Our doctors and nurses will find the right medications, treatment, and even surgeries to reduce diabetes’ effects on your body.

Other kinds of diabetes include types 1 and 3 and gestational diabetes, which is common during pregnancy. No matter what kind you have, we can help each step of the way to ensure you maintain healthy habits and properly treat your diabetes.
