Positive Cardiometabolic Health for People With Intellectual Disability
People with an intellectual disability (ID) experience poorer health and higher mortality rates than the general population. A major contributor to this health inequality is the high rate of cardiometabolic disease experienced by people with an ID. Cardiometabolic risk factors for people with an ID differ from the general population; they include higher rates of psychotropic medication prescription and polypharmacy, and certain genetic syndromes associated with ID. New resources relating to an early intervention framework is now available.
Keeping the Body in Mind
Keeping the Body In Mind (KBIM) is a District wide program of SESLHD Mental Health for consumers of the Service developed to prevent and address cardiometabolic health issues. There are teams based at Bondi, Maroubra, St George and Sutherland. Each team consists of a nurse, exercise physiologist, dietitian and peer support worker.
