What is Cardiometabolic Health?
Cardiometabolic health is a term that encompasses cardiovascular and metabolic disturbances including elevated lipids (cholesterol), pre-diabetes, obesity, and inflammation. In the past decade, there have been dramatic rises in chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, obesity and heart disease. Cardiometabolic health is multifactorial and affected by a wide range of factors including lifestyle, environment, diet and genetic and epigenetic factors.
Join the Thrive team for a 4-week specialized program to dive deep into the newest data on cardiometabolic health, including advanced lipid assays, inflammatory markers, and highly effective non-conventional therapies. Participants will not only learn more about the pathophysiology of cardiometabolic disease, but they will also be privy to some of the newest tests with personalized interpretation and functional interventions to prevent and possibly reverse the onset of chronic disease. Most importantly, participants will be provided the tools to reverse abnormalities and maintain the positive changes for life.
Who Should Attend: Patients with elevated blood cholesterol panels, elevated fasting metabolic markers like glucose or insulin, a diagnosis of prediabetes or a family history of cardiometabolic disease. Patients interested in the prevention of cardiometabolic disease. Attendants do not need to be patients at Thrive to participate.
