What is this course about?
Metabolic dysfunction mechanistically underpins the array of chronic degenerative conditions that the World Health Organization now ranks as the leading causes of death worldwide. Exciting new research reveals that uric acid, previously considered clinically relevant only in the context of gout or kidney stones, actually plays a central role in regulating insulin sensitivity, metabolism, blood pressure and lipid balance. As such, understanding the factors that increase uric acid levels as well supported lifestyle interventions designed to normalize uric acid values presents a new and powerful adjunctive clinical tool for the prevention and treatment of the most pervasive of disease conditions.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine and the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine.
