The Kardiovize team from the International Clinical Research Centre of St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno has prepared preventive examinations for the public, aimed at the possible detection of cardiometabolic diseases. Interested people will undergo a medical examination by a doctor, a sonograph or a nutritional counsellor.

Preventive check-ups – especially for cardiometabolic diseases – are very important. “According to the results of our Kardiovize study, approximately 60% of the adult population in Brno meets the criteria for starting lifestyle intervention programmes at an early stage of the disease. Our centre can contribute to the detection and stratification of at-risk subjects and provide effective interventions. Currently, the Kardiovize Lifestyle Centre offers screening and lifestyle interventions as part of primary prevention (i.e. before the onset of any complication). Effective interventions in the early stages of the disease prevent the development of complications and are especially designed for people who are overweight – obesity, prediabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes – but without the presence of complications (stroke, heart attack, etc.),” said Juan Pablo Gonzalez Rivas, head of the Kardiovize research team, adding: “Unhealthy lifestyles are the cause of most common diseases worldwide. Unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption are the main drivers of non-communicable diseases. Lifestyle medicine offers an opportunity to prevent these diseases and complications in their early stages.”

Kardiovize is offering three packages to interested parties based on the number of tests and collections. This is a paid service.
