Evaluating and Treating Dyslipidemia in the Cardiometabolic Syndrome
Cardiometabolic syndrome is a constellation of metabolic disorders characterized by insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance, atherogenic dyslipidemia, hypertension and intra-abdominal adiposity (IAA). The components of this syndrome individually and interdependently are strong risk factors for high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This course will provide an overview of the components of metabolic syndrome, as well as evidence-based recommendations for adequate management.
