Chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease develop over many years of lifestyle problems such as an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, and gaining weight. As the health problem slowly progresses, you have a window of time when you can prevent it from becoming a full-blown chronic disease.
You can only prevent the disease when you know it exists, however, which is a problem because most chronic diseases don’t cause symptoms until they reach an advanced stage.
