UHIP is founded on the basic principal that "Knowledge is Power." The more you understand your health  and how the "human machine" works the better you are able to make informed decisions concerning treatment plans and the care of your body. UHIP's strives to improve education, screenings, and medical management tools around  our seven health pillars: Diabetes/Obesity, Hypertension/Cardiovascular Disease, COPD, Chronic Kidney Disease, HIV & Infectious Diseases, Cancer Screenings and Aging/Dementia/Depression/Dying.  Let's learn to live a healthy life.

UHIP LEARNING CENTER -- OUR SEVEN HEALTH PILLARS

 

A total of 25.8 million people in the U.S. have diabetes. Only 18.8 million are diagnosed, meaning that over seven million cases are going untreated.  Diabetes can causes heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, neuropathy, amputation and other ailments

 

OBESITY is not just a problem - it is an epidemic.  More than 68.8 percent of all Americans are considered obese. Over 30 percent of America's children are considered obese.

COPD is the third leading cause of death in the USA

and affects more than 13.5 million Americans.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE (CKD)

KIDNEYS 101

Your kidneys do a lot more than make pee.  They get rid of toxins in your body, control your blood pressure, keep your bones strong, and help affect how other organs work.

 

GET CHECKED

Making sure your kidneys are working okay is super easy. Just go see your doctor for a simple urine test.  Thats all there is to it.

 

 

 

 

• 1 in 9 American adults have kidney disease -- and most don't know it.

• 1 in 3 Americans is at risk of developing kidney disease and most don't know it.

• Early detection and treatment can slow or prevent the progression of kidney disease.

• Kidney Disease risk can be reduced by controlling blood pressure and blood sugar,

quitting smoking, regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight.

 

“Because kidney disease may be silent, it’s critically important that anyone at risk—

those with high blood pressure, diabetes, age over 60 or a family history

of kidney failure see your clinician for testing annually.”

Cancer Screenings

• More than one million people in the United States get cancer each year. Whether you have cancer or are close to someone who does, understanding what to expect can help you cope.

 

• Cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases characterized by the development of abnormal cells that divide uncontrollably and have the ability to infiltrate and destroy normal body tissue.

 

• Many cancer deaths could be prevented by making healthy choices like

getting recommended screening tests, not smoking, staying at a healthy weight,

eating right, and keeping active.
