We have been in quarantine for 6 months and to date, Filipinos are still adjusting to the new normal. The risk of exposure is still a great concern thus most of us are still afraid to go out. We definitely miss malling and dining out. Family bonding outside of our home is essential. We love to eat and try new cuisines and we can’t wait for this pandemic to be over.
But, what if you get sick or you have concerns regarding your Diabetes or Hypertension? Are you willing to go to the hospital and take the risk?
I have asthma and borderline Diabetes and my husband have just started seeing spikes on his blood pressure. A few months ago, we really wanted to consult face to face with our physician but we’re too scared of hospitals and clinics because of the pandemic. Just the mere thought of being with other people made us just wave off whatever concerns we had at that time.
But, we needed help and we don’t want to worsen our medical conditions. We are already in our 50s and aware that if such conditions are left unattended for long, they could lead to severe problems.
So, I did some research and found out about e-Health and telemedicine. Did you know that these concerns can be prevented? Yes! Had I known much earlier, I would not have done a bit of asthma self-medication and my husband’s condition could have been treated asap.
Nowadays, for medical concerns that are not of an emergency case, you can talk to your doctor over the internet or online. The gap between doctors and Filipino patients with chronic diseases has been bridged by technology.
There are various mediums used for telemedicine and if you are ready to consult online and want to start exploring this option, Sanofi WeHealth is a great starting point.
