Program Overview

The growing prevalence of the cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) has been related to obesity, which has increased among many age groups. It is currently accepted that CMS predicts cardiovascular mortality and/or the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus. CMS is further complicated by modifications in body composition and fat redistribution and is often associated with altered insulin sensitivity. The primary goal of clinical management of the metabolic syndrome is to reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
