Asthma is a chronic lung disease, which can be controlled but not cured.
In clinical practice, asthma is defined by the presence of both of the following: Excessive variation in lung function ('variable airflow limitation', i.e. variations in expiratory airflow that is greater than that seen in healthy people) Respiratory symptoms (e.g. wheeze, shortness of breath, cough, chest tightness) that vary over time and may be present or absent at any point in time.
Our medical centre work with our patients and their families to develop long term treatment plans post diagnosis and ways to manage the disorder effectively.
Diabetes is a national health priority. The number of people with type 2 diabetes is growing, most likely the result of rising overweight and obesity rates, lifestyle and dietary changes, and an ageing population.
To treat and manage effectively one of the greater threats in Australia we provide a detailed management plan after the medical examination.
