Chronic health problems

asked June 17, 2013 | 9 followers | follow

So many people have multiple long term issues with Diabetes, obesity, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. How do you help these people get into a lifestyle program to improve their health or prevent more complications from the above? The Adult Day Care population I’ve worked with is mostly Hispanic and most of the clients have at least 2 of the above if not all of the above diagnoses. I’ve tried counseling and exercise programs and just haven’t made any significant progress. These issues have become major health problems for America. How can we begin the fix this?
