Internal Medicine is a medical specialty that involves an array of conditions affecting the internal body organs. This typically includes the lungs, liver, heart, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, sinuses, throat, brain, spinal column, kidneys, muscles, joints, and nerves. Most chronic conditions and diseases affect more than one body organ or system.
Internal Medicine physicians are also called Internists or Diagnosticians and they usually help treat and manage conditions that affect adults, such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and arthritis. These conditions usually become more severe and common with aging. An internist is a general health care provider that can diagnose and treat back pain, abdominal pain, chest pain, and a variety of other common conditions such as infections and wellness.
Internal Medicine can involve care during or after hospitalization. Most Internal Medicine physicians also educate patients on the best ways to prevent disease and live a healthier lifestyle.
Internal Medicine can incorporate substance abuse, women’s health, men’s health, mental health, and the treatment of common problems relating to the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.
