Diabetes and Cardiometabolic Health - Episode 1

Episode 1 - The Prevalence of Comorbid Cardiometabolic Disorders in the US

During this portion of the peer exchange, Dr. Peter Salgo was joined by David Calabrese, RPh, MHP and Drs. Kenneth L Schaecher, Yehuda Handelsman, and Michael Weber to discuss the relationship between cardiovascular health and cardiometabolic comorbidities. Diabetes affects an estimated 26 million Americans, is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stroke, and is the 7th leading cause of death in the US. Unfortunately, diabetes is a chronic and often life-long disorder that is associated with substantial burden. By increasing the awareness and education of diabetes, knowledge gaps are bridged, and overcoming the various comorbid cardiometabolic disorders becomes that much more of a reality.
