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.
Teresa O’Keefe Featured on Institute for Healthcare Consumerism Radio
Brent and Doug speak with Teresa O’Keefe, co-founder, Consumable Science, on the applications of a consumer health score. Teresa shares insights to MyBodyScore (MBS), becoming a score factory, and using MBS in exchanges and prevention. [In February, 2015, MyBodyCount, LLC changed it’s name to Consumable Science, Inc. and the product was rebranded to MyBodyScore].

Sign up on our mailing list here: BodyScore Estimator. We will communicate to you when self-testing kits and retail screening centers are available. Alternatively, your biomarker data may be collected by a MyBodyScore (MBS) screening partner at a company-sponsored wellness screening or your healthcare provider. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes.
Our standard screening only requires a finger stick to yield a few drops of blood. The blood is deposited in a sealed kit and is sent to a certified lab that your doctor will trust so you can share your results and do not need to be retested. We stay on top of the latest screening and testing science and promise to deliver it to you as it becomes available.
GET YOUR SCORE
When the results are ready, we alert you through text or email. You will see how you relate to your your peers (age & gender) and how your behaviors affect your biomarkers, your score and your life expectancy. After multiple screenings, you’ll be able to distinctly measure how small changes make a difference!
Please inform us of any ideas or feedback.
We’d love to work with you!
