Today’s medicine maintains as 2 separate medical fields metabolic cardiovascular disorders (MCVDs) and major psychiatric disorders (MPDs) such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. Yet MCVD and MPD can affect the same patient, and they may share common genetic, environmental, and developmental roots. Confronting these facts innovatively may have unforeseen clinical and research significance.
