Chronic Metabolic and Cardiovascular Disorders: Insights and Education

Transforming the Assessment, Prevention, and Management of Chronic Metabolic and Cardiovascular Disorders

Over the last 10 years, researchers have discovered that controlling heart disease is not merely a matter of driving serum cholesterol down; 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels1. Why is this problematic? It means that for at least one out of every two patients having a heart attack, a clinician may not have addressed the risk factors that caused their heart attack. Research is shedding light on safer and more effective strategies of identifying important risk factors for preventing or reversing cardiometabolic disease, including advanced lipid assays and markers of oxidative stress, inflammation, hormone levels, and comprehensive body composition analysis.

In this video, IFM educator Shilpa P. Saxena, MD, explains that insulin is a driving force that creates a cardiometabolic state that includes inflammation and adiposity.

Attendee Testimonials

The content about lipid management was top priority for me, and I feel like this was covered very well during the conference. This conference was more than just head knowledge, which also set it apart. There was a unique heart engagement that was motivating and inspirational.
