Cardiometabolic-Based Chronic Disease, Addressing Knowledge and Clinical Practice Gaps: JACC State-of-the-Art Review

Academic Article


  • In the second part of this JACC State-of-the-Art Review, an early and sustainable preventive care plan is described for cardiometabolic-based chronic disease. This plan can improve cardiometabolic health by targeting early mechanistic events to decrease the risk for certain cardiovascular diseases (e.g., coronary heart disease, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation). Included are various prevention modalities, intensive lifestyle interventions, pharmacotherapy and cardiovascular outcome trial evidence, and bariatric/metabolic procedures. A tactical approach of implementing published clinical practice guidelines/algorithms for early behavioral, adiposity, and dysglycemia targeting is emphasized, as well as relevant educational and research implications.
