Health Information

 

Welcome to Lee Health Solutions, a Lee Memorial Health System Department created to help patients manage chronic health conditions. Lee Health Solutions has programs for diabetes, weight management.

Lee Health Solutions began with just one program, Lee Diabetes Care. Our success in helping those with diabetes to live better, fuller, healthier lives convinced us to expand our services to help those with other chronic conditions that diminish the quality of life.

The prevalence and cost of chronic disease in the United States is staggering:

  • About 133 million Americans suffer from at least one chronic condition.
  • Chronic conditions result in 70% of all deaths in the nation.
  • The medical costs for patients with chronic disease makes up 75% of the nation's $2 trillion in healthcare costs.
  • Nearly 25.8 million Americans have diabetes.  
  • Nearly 7 million Americans have undiagnosed diabetes.
  • It is estimated that 68% of American adults are classified as overweight and obese.
