Cardio Metabolic Health
Cardio-metabolic health or syndrome is a term that encompasses a combination of metabolic dysfunctions characterized by insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, dyslipidemia, elevated blood pressure and central obesity or “belly fat”.
Cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, two very common medical conditions in the United States. Collectively, such conditions are the leading cause of preventable death for men and women worldwide.
- As many as 1 in 3 American adults have insulin resistance and do not know it
- About 1 in 3 adults have high blood pressure
- Over 1 in 3 American adults are overweight or obese
- 1 in 3 adults over the age of forty have metabolic syndrome
- More than 1 in 3 American adults have cardiovascular disease
A cardio-metabolic health examination is important for any individual who wants an in depth evaluation of their cardio-metabolic health to determine early and treatable disease states. It generally includes:
Detailed history and physical
Cardiovascular laboratory Evaluation
Carotid Intima Media Thickness Test
Coronary Artery Calcium Score
and a careful explanation of your current heart health with specific cutting edge evidenced-based-medicine recommendations based on what is discovered. This level of medical attention and aggressive preventative management is what high end, detail oriented individuals need to maintain their edge.
