Many people suffer from chronic conditions of which they have little understanding. AkesoCare’s Disease Management Program provides you with easy to understand, educational information, providing you with the knowledge to make changes and corrections needed for a healthier you. As Sir Francis Bacon stated in his famous quote in 1597, "KNOWLEDGE IS POWER." AkesoCare’s goal is to provide you with knowledge, giving you the power to take control of your condition.

  • Asthma
  • Coronary Heart Disease (CHD-which includes Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia)
  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

Each link on the right hand side of the page provides you with additional information about these diseases and some additional basic medical information. You should always discuss your condition with your physician and ask any questions you may have. The information provided in no way is a substitute for a doctor and should not be used as such.
