6 in 10 U.S. adults have chronic disease and four in ten have at least two or more diseases.
What is Chronic Disease?
Chronic disease is defined as ongoing conditions that require scheduled medical attention and are generally incurable illnesses such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, and diabetes.
According to the CDC, “heart disease, cancer and diabetes are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. They are also leading drivers of the nation’s $3.5 trillion in annual health care cost.”

Our goal is to educate the public about chronic-conditions through technology and give you the tools to improve chronic illness. It’s by no means a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions.
