Take control of your chronic disease

This year the specific theme is “Chronic diseases: Take control”.
A chronic disease is a long lasting condition. Although it may not be cured, it can be managed. Common chronic diseases include high blood pressure, diabetes and asthma, although there are many more.
Many chronic diseases can be improved by:
* Healthy lifestyle choices such as:
Eating vegetables and fruits as often as possible.
Being physically active for 30 minutes a day, at least five times a week.
Not smoking or using tobacco products.
Reducing salt and sugar intake.
* Taking your medicines properly:
Your pharmacist can help you understand how to take your medicine.
Every medicine should be taken at the correct dose, in the correct way and at the correct time.
Continue to take your medicine even if you are feeling well.
Do not share your medicine.
If you have problems with your medicine, ask your pharmacist.
