Metabolic diseases are a diverse group of conditions that affect human metabolism, including diabetes, obesity, dyslipidemia, and metabolic syndrome, among others. They compromise the cardiovascular system and cause events such as heart attacks and strokes, leading causes of death in Brazil. The incidence of these diseases has increased significantly in recent years in the country, following the global trend. In 2022, approximately 15.7 million adult Brazilians were diagnosed with diabetes, representing 7% of the population, making the country the sixth highest incidence, behind only China, India, Pakistan, the United States and Indonesia.
Obesity affects more than 20% of the Brazilian population and dyslipidemia, like hypercholesterolemia, is diagnosed in approximately 40% of adults. “The prevention and adequate treatment of metabolic diseases are essential to promote health and reduce the risk of serious complications, and multidisciplinary work with nurses, nutritionists, physiotherapists and physical educators, for example, is essential,” says Fernanda Colombo, President of the Congress. of the Cardiology Society of the State of São Paulo, which takes place on June 8, 9 and 10 in Transamerica Expo Centerin the capital of São Paulo.

“For me, the importance of participating in the SOCESP Congress lies in the incredible opportunity to create an international network among professionals involved in the treatment of metabolic diseases. This networking has the potential to provide creative and innovative approaches to address the significant burden that metabolic diseases represent for any health system worldwide,” said the expert.
