A MyBodyScore vampire bites you.
Just kidding. Your biomarker information is collected by a MyBodyScore (MBS) screening partner. At a wellness fair or screening center, our partner will perform your screening and take a blood sample. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes.
Your blood is tested by a certified lab.
We maintain clinical accuracy by using testing labs that your doctor will trust so you can share your results and do not need to be retested. We are on top of the latest science about testing and promise to bring that to you.
Access your personalized health score.
Over multiple screenings, you’ll be able to relate your behaviors directly to changes in your biomarkers and score. You can “body hack”, for example, start taking the stairs every day and see how it improves your score. In the future, you’ll be able to be retested any time. We’ll continue to deliver world-class science to you through our technology. You may even start to love the healthcare industry (or maybe just us)!
The “biomarker” inputs to the score are measured primarily through your blood, providing insights into longevity, medical conditions and quality of life. Your body and biomarkers are changing all the time. The score provides a more stable and accurate predictor of your overall health.
MyBodyScore was developed with the highest degree of clinical and epidemiological integrity, by doctors and researchers from the Johns Hopkins University. We use the same data and math to create our score that is used in world class science and connect it to you!
MyBodyScore interprets confusing science for you. You see and can easily understand the connections between behaviors and your health. You can set simple lifestyle-based goals to improve your score, finding your personal pathway to well-being.
Healthcare providers and coaches can work more effectively with you using MyBodyScore to facilitate communication of real risk; and the score can verify if your health programs are working for you.
Body-Mass Index (BMI)
BMI is a number calculated from a person’s weight and height. BMI is a fairly reliable indicator of “adiposity” (fat stored in the fatty tissue of the body) for most people. In the future, we may use additional measures to better account for adiposity.
Cholesterol is a wax-like substance found throughout your body. Your body needs a little bit of cholesterol to work properly. But too much cholesterol can clog your arteries and lead to heart disease.
HDL is the “good cholesterol.” This friendly scavenger cruises the bloodstream, removing harmful bad cholesterol.
Systolic Blood Pressure
Systolic blood pressure measures the amount of pressure that blood exerts on arteries when the heart contracts with each beat.
HbA1c shows the average level of blood sugar (glucose) over the previous 3 months. It indicates your risk for diabetes, or if you already have it, how well you’re controlling it.
Creatinine levels correspond with kidney function giving an estimate of how well your kidneys are doing their job of filtering waste. When the kidneys are not filtering well, Creatinine may increase.
Tobacco Use (Cotinine)
Cotinine levels correspond with levels of exposure to tobacco smoke. Even people who don’t smoke can be exposed to secondhand smoke.
