Description

Cardiometabolic disease is the number one cause of death in the world – so why haven’t you heard about it?  Maybe because its components, (including hypertension, high triglycerides, insulin resistance, obesity, and low LDL cholesterol), have traditionally been treated individually, instead of as a related cluster of conditions that, when combined, significantly increase a person’s risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

Medical providers are assembling multidisciplinary teams of experts to address the disease with a combination of lifestyle changes and medical therapies. 

Guest Theodore Feldman, M.D.,  medical director of community health at Baptist Health's Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute (MCVI), joins host, Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., to explore what a diagnosis of cardiometabolic disease entails, and how it can be prevented and treated.
