We now know how to prevent cardiovascular and related metabolic diseases in almost every individual.
Recent advances in biomarker research have made it possible to detect the underlying pathologies of metabolic disorders and other contributors to heart disease, before overt clinical symptoms manifest. With early detection and aggressive medical treatment, cardiovascular disease can be prevented. Type II diabetes can be avoided or reversed. Patients can also be empowered to make exercise and dietary changes that will markedly change their lives.
