Here are some common questions we’ll answer NOW, the rest you can ask the experts this May 19-20, 2023, in Orlando!

A: Low-grade systemic inflammation precedes the onset of cardiovascular events by many years, and inflammation is a consistent predictor of cardiovascular risk.

A: A large body of clinical data shows that reducing inflammation has cardiometabolic benefits, and reducing inflammation remains an active area of research that also has important clinical implications, including in the prevention and management of obesity, dyslipidemia, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes.

A: An excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6; it also reduces the production of adiponectin, promoting inflammation and oxidative stress.

A: Inflammation is a primary mechanism in developed cardiometabolic diseases including coagulation, atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. It is also associated with the development of diseases such as psoriasis, depression, cancer, and renal diseases, conditions that often occur comorbidly in people with cardiometabolic conditions.

A: The activation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) links pathogenic and cellular danger signals, organizing cellular resistance to perceived threats and triggering inflammation.
