Event Details

EVENT: Metabolic Syndrome: From Systems Thinking to Personalised Care

Over 30% of adults present clinically with Metabolic Syndrome, a cluster of risk factors including glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, obesity, and elevated blood pressure that together dramatically increase risk of cardiovascular disease. The development of metabolic syndrome is dynamic and multifactorial, but dietary factors, ectopic obesity, insulin resistance, and inflammation all play a central role.

Clinically, biomarkers can help identify and direct management, including glucose homeostasis, waist measurement, lipid fractions, blood pressure, nutritional biochemistry, uric acid, inflammatory markers, and bioactive adipokines. Furthermore, unique clinical phenotypes based on adiposity, vascular health, blood lipid profiles, insulin resistance, and hormonal profiles have been identified and translate to specific management approaches. 

In this important talk, we breakdown and demystify metabolic syndrome by exploring simple clinical assessments that reveal subtypes and help direct effective evidence-based nutritional and lifestyle management approaches. We also explore key issues such as nutrient-drug interactions and integrative patient care.

This presentation will explore:

ü  the key drivers of the pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome

ü  simple clinical assessments that can be used in daily practice

ü  advanced biomarkers and functional assessments

ü  how to personalize nutritional approaches to different clinical subtypes

ü  positive, and negative, nutrient-drug interactions
