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.

The session will conclude with a cooking demo, showing easy ways to make popular foods with a healthful and delicious twist.

Instructors: Sandra Tsai, MD, MPH, is a board-certified internist who currently practices at Stanford Health Care. She specializes in cardiometabolic conditions, including elevated cholesterol, elevated glucose, and hypertension.

Rosalyne Tu, MS, RDN, has been working as a dietitian since 2003 and is currently a manager for the BeWell Wellness Profile and HIP nutrition programs.
