Cardiometabolic Services at ZüpMed
We’re passionate about caring for your heart, your metabolism, and your overall wellness! Cardiometabolic disease begins with only slight changes in weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, or blood glucose. Add in a pro-inflammatory typical American diet and some cantankerous genetics and these slight changes can develop into diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Uncovering your cardiometabolic risk and intervening early can delay and even halt the onset of these life-threatening illnesses. Our cardiometabolic program has proven to be successful in reducing excess pounds on the scale, decreasing waist circumference (your old clothes may fit again!), reducing blood pressure, and achieving lower glucose targets.

Cardiometabolic Health Frequently Asked Questions
What is “cardiometabolic” risk?
Let’s face it. They don’t call this part of the country “The Stroke Belt” for nothing. Whether it’s the food we eat, our lack of exercise, or the genes that we’re born with, people in the South have a significantly higher risk of stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure. That risk can be dialed down to factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and being overweight or obese.
