Here at Treated.com, we’ve developed our service with convenience in mind. As well as offering a reliable and safe consultation and prescription service, which is staffed by qualified physicians, we also provide a reordering service for those looking to get repeat medications delivered to their home.

A chronic condition is one which tends to require long-term treatment. Many of these conditions go through periods of flare-up and remission.

IBS is one such example. This is a condition which affects the gut, and can cause a range of symptoms including bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and fatigue. It is a common condition, thought to affect roughly one in five people in the UK. What causes it is not entirely understood, and symptom triggers can vary depending on the person. For some, stress may cause symptoms to flare-up; whereas for others, dietary factors such as processed food, caffeine, alcohol or fizzy drinks may trigger an episode.

Making dietary or lifestyle changes can often help patients with IBS to manage the condition. However, some people may also require treatment to ease discomfort. Mebeverine is a treatment which combats symptoms of IBS by encouraging muscles in the gut to relax. This helps to reduce pain and unpredictable spasms in the digestive system.

Dry eyes, or dry eyes syndrome, is characterised by inhibited in tear production in the eyes. This can lead to feelings of irritation and redness in the eyes, as tears are needed to keep the eyes lubricated. Ilube helps to alleviate symptoms by preventing the buildup of mucus, and providing lubrication.

Chronic conditions can be caused by a range of factors and affect various parts of the body, including the airways (asthma and COPD), the heart and cardiovascular system (high blood pressure, high cholesterol and angina), the legs and feet (restless legs, fluid retention and gout), and the extremities (Raynaud’s syndrome). Other examples of chronic conditions which often require ongoing treatment are diabetes and hypothyroidism.
