Cardiometabolic disease (CD) is a highly prevalent and interrelated set of conditions that include cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and hypertension, as well as metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Just four of these conditions (CHD, stroke, hypertension, and diabetes) are present in 122 million adults and account for over 810,000 deaths each year. CHD remains the # 1 cause of death in America. And while death rates from cardiovascular diseases have meaningfully declined over the past 4 decades, its strain on the health care system remains unparalleled, with over 88 million office visits, 9.5 million hospitalizations and ER visits, and 8 million surgical procedures performed each year.
Cardiometabolic disease is a growing epidemic here in the United States. At present, one out of every two American adults is living with one or more cardiometabolic diseases.
At the same time, diabetes rates (14% of adults) have reached epidemic numbers and continue to increase as our obesity epidemic (40% of adults) remains unmitigated. Diabetes, like all cardiometabolic conditions, is a major contributor to disability, medical costs and loss of productivity, leading to $526 billion in direct and indirect costs each year. CHD, stroke, dyslipidemia, and hypertension add another $1.5 trillion in total costs per year. This collective health and economic burden is expected to grow as the population ages and prevalence of other cardiometabolic conditions, like NAFLD, blossom.
These sobering statistics fail to capture the day-to-day experience of our patients and their families. To manage cardiometabolic conditions, 40% of adults will take 5 or more meds daily by age 65. As the number of medicines grows with age, so too does the daily experience of side-effects, increased risk of adverse drug reactions and rapidly increasing medication co-pays. All this ignores the strain on families coping with the inevitable hospitalizations and death of their loved ones that result from cardiometabolic disease.
This seminar will dive into:
- The 6 major modifiable lifestyle factors contributing to the current cardiometabolic disease epidemic.
- The important connection between Metabolic Syndrome (METs) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), you can’t have one without the other!
- A review of the important tests used for the proper diagnosis of CD.
- Learn how to recommend whole-food based nutritional support, diet & lifestyle modifications, and key herbs to address cardiometabolic disease.
