Cardiometabolic Health and Reproductive Disease

Metabolic syndrome and associated comorbidities, such as cardiovascular disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes, are becoming more common in women of reproductive age and beyond. In addition to traditional cardiometabolic risk factors, additional risk factors, including pregnancy-related outcomes, gestational diabetes mellitus, polycystic ovary syndrome, and hormonal replacement therapy, confer important implications on women's cardiometabolic health across the lifespan.

Additionally, suboptimal cardiometabolic health, often manifested as an increase in body weight and decrease in muscle mass and bone density, can often impact overall reproductive health. During this interactive meeting, multidisciplinary expert faculty will provide valuable clinical pearls on how to address these unique challenges.
