This lesson will focus on the utilization of advanced lipid and lipoprotein testing and metabolic markers to assess risk for cardiovascular disease and cognitive diseases such as vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Clinicians will gain an essential understanding of the basics of lipidology, with a more advanced look into lipids, lipoproteins, sterols and the interaction with metabolic health. A basic introduction to lipid physiology will evolve into the clinical application, and interpretation of lipid and metabolic biomarkers to better understand cardiometabolic risk assessment and subsequently the prevention of these chronic illnesses which threaten both lifespan and healthspan.
