Cardiometabolic health encompasses the overall health of the heart and the body’s metabolic processes. Metabolism includes a range of factors that can impact cardiovascular health, such as blood sugar regulation, insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, liver health, cholesterol levels, nutritional status and inflammation.


Overall, cardiometabolic health is one of the most important aspects of optimal health and well-being, and taking steps to maintain a healthy heart and metabolic system can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and other health problems.

Key Components of Cardiometabolic Health

Blood Sugar Regulation:

This refers to the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are consistently high, it can lead to insulin resistance, which is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.


Blood Pressure:

This refers to the force of blood against the walls of the arteries. High blood pressure can damage the arteries and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.


Cholesterol Levels:

This includes standard lipid testing (Total cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C and triglycerides) but also encompasses additional testing of particles that have a high potential to cause heart disease, such as ApoB or Lpa. Advanced particle testing is also an option and provides an in-depth analysis for those who need a much more thorough assessment.



This refers to the body’s response to injury, infection or byproducts of poor metabolism. Chronic inflammation can contribute to a range of health problems, including cardiovascular disease.


Body Composition:

Muscle mass lowers risk of disease because it is a warehouse for storing sugar, and therefore can support glucose metabolism and protect the heart. Adipose tissue is itself an inflammatory organ and will increase inflammation and risk of not only heart disease, but type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s as well.


Lifestyle Factors:

Lifestyle factors such as sleep, exercise, diet and stress management can play a significant role in cardiometabolic health. Quality sleep sets the stage for all aspects of physical, mental and emotional well-being. Poor sleep increases risk of all chronic disease and contributes to poor metabolism. The standard American diet (SAD) is extremely pro-inflammatory and increases risk of all disease. A healthy diet that is rich in whole foods and fiber, low in processed foods and added sugars, high in protein and high in healthy fats can help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation. Regular exercise helps improve not only cardiovascular health, but all aspects of health and wellness. Stress management techniques such as mindfulness meditation and deep breathing exercises can help reduce stress and inflammation.
