If you have type 2 diabetes, your main health focus is likely controlling your blood sugar and managing your weight. But it’s also important to pay attention to your heart. You could be one of the millions of Americans — and one-third of people with diabetes — who have cardiometabolic disease.
At Baptist Health, our Cardiometabolic Clinic is the first (and currently only) program of its kind in South Florida. Our multidisciplinary team takes a comprehensive approach to treating your diabetes, heart disease and other medical conditions.
Let us help you manage your diabetes and heart disease so you can reclaim your best life.
Our Approach to Cardiometabolic Care
Cardiometabolic disease can be complex. So, we take a multidisciplinary approach to treating it. Our priority is reducing the likelihood that you’ll experience other severe health problems like heart attack, stroke or kidney failure.
But we do more than simply deliver medical therapies. As part of your cardiometabolic care, we take the time to explain your risks and help you understand how to avoid future problems or even reverse some of the damage to your heart that’s already happened.
When you “graduate” from our Cardiometabolic Clinic, you will better understand your cardiometabolic disease risk factors and be able to manage them.
"For someone who's really dedicated to beating diabetes, it’s absolutely achievable — more so now than in the past because we know more about diabetes and we have better ways of monitoring and treating it."
Our Cardiometabolic Clinic is provided through the Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute at several locations in Miami-Dade County. Find a location near you.
