Introducing a revolutionary new way to measure your true health.

You may feel pretty healthy – but how do you know?

MyBodycount is a clinical health score. It works like a credit score, giving you a simple, science-based roadmap to good health based on the choices you make every day.

MyBodycount gives you the information you need to proactively control factors that affect your quality of life as you age.

Put simply, MyBodycount makes it easier to be healthy – with the peace of mind that comes from world class medical research.

How does it work?

icon-color-clipboard

Your biomarker information is collected by a MyBodycount (MBC) screening partner. This includes a blood draw. Because your MBC score can be used as a currency to “buy down” your insurance, this information can’t be self-reported. No worries – we do all the work!

Your blood is tested by a certified lab. The confidential results are posted to your secure MBC account (in the future they are shared with your doctor too!). Your screening sample is tested by the same trusted, certified labs your doctor uses – so there’s no need for re-testing.

You log into your private, secure MBC account to see your score. You’ll see breakdowns of what your numbers mean and you’ll be presented with different options for improvement. You’ll also be able to see how your score relates to your peers in various populations.

It’s all in the numbers.

The MBC score is based on biomarkers. We measure these with a simple blood test, and that test gives us metrics. Those metrics tell us how likely you are you develop health issues that affect your longevity, insurance expenses and quality of life.

Your behavior counts.

Biomarkers are affected primarily by your behavior. So if you eat healthy, exercise regularly, don’t smoke and take your meds, your score will be good. And if your score isn’t so good, you can improve it pretty quickly by doing the right things.

Your score is leverage.

In the very near future, your MBC score can be used as currency. Think of it like a credit score or a good driving record. A good score or improvements to your score will reward you with incentives. Those incentives lower your health care costs (e.g. insurance premiums).

what biomarkers are measured?


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.

 


Total Cholesterol
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 Cholesterol
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
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
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.

MyBodycount Launches First Universal Health Score Based on Lifestyle Risk Factors
MyBodycount (MBC), a health and wellness platform that enables individuals to track their lifestyle-based health risk, today introduced the first-ever clinical health score available to the public. The MBC Health Score was developed using actuarial science working in conjunction with Dr. Hunter Young, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM) and Dr. Dhananjay Vaidya, Associate Professor of Medicine at JHUSOM.
