PAEZ RAMOS, Sandra. Relación lógica entre el Cuidado y las Enfermedades Crónicas. Ene. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.4, 1347.  Epub June 01, 2020. ISSN 1988-348X.

Chronic diseases are a first-level problem in today's Healthcare. All of them count on many modifiable risk factors. The most common risk factors constitute unhealthy life habits which, by the Orem's "Self-care deficit" nursing theory, can be framed into an inadequate self-care agency.

The main point in this paper is to identify if care and the development of chronic diseases are related. The method used was a deductive one.

Maladjusted care related to the individual's caring needs, permanently in time, was identified as the one to blame for affecting the health, developing chronic diseases.

Keywords : Care; Health; Disease; Affectation; Chronic; Needs.
