Reduce your Cardiometabolic Risks with a Healthy Lifestyle

Cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) is a combination of metabolic dysfunctions that can greatly increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and other diseases. An estimated 47 million people in the US are living with cardiometabolic disorders. Knowing how to decrease your risk can help you live a longer, healthier life.

In this noontime webinar, you will learn the signs and stages of CMS, review the relationship between blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, and excess weight as it relates to this syndrome, and discover how a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, healthy diet, regular sleep, not smoking, and stress reduction can greatly reduce your risk. Research has shown that improving cardiometabolic health reduces individual risk factors and reduces overall mortality, independent of weight.

This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.
