2014 Cardiometabolic Health Congress

The biggest health problem facing the world today is from the combined impact of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

It is critical that physicians and health care providers understand the predictive relationship between metabolic risk factors and cardiovascular disease and employ aggressive intervention strategies to prevent and/or delay disease progression. The Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) translates the latest clinical data into practical strategies to prevent, delay, and manage cardiometabolic risk.

Message de Petra Wilson, CEO de la FID

Dans certaines régions du monde, les personnes atteintes de diabète passent à peine cinq heures par an en compagnie d’un professionnel de la santé pour s’entretenir de la manière de prendre en charge et de surveiller leur maladie. Le reste de l’année, c’est à elles de gérer leur diabète et de prendre des décisions en fonction de leur état de santé, et ce, en bénéficiant de peu de soutien.

Mensaje de la Dra. Petra Wilson, CEO de la FID

En algunas regiones del mundo, las personas con diabetes pasan tan sólo cinco horas al año con un profesional de la salud para hablar de la forma de tratar y controlar su condición. El resto del año tienen que tratar y tomar decisiones sobre su diabetes con poco apoyo. Estas decisiones se basan a menudo en un conocimiento limitado de los costes y beneficios de las decisiones tomadas.

Message from Petra Wilson, CEO, IDF

In some regions of the world, people with diabetes spend as few as five hours a year with a healthcare profesional discussing how to manage and control their condition. The rest of the year they are left to manage and make decisions on their diabetes with little support. The health effects of poor decisions can be dramatic.
