How is my health score calculated?

Understand your biometric risk categories and point values used to calculate your total score.

In order to better understand your biometric report and learn the point values associated with each risk category, you can review our Standard Scoring Algorithm.

You'll also find resources provided for each risk category in the "Learn More" section on the right side of your report.

How is the Scoring Algorithm Designed? 

Our Scoring Algorithm is designed from research and guidelines provided by the Center of Disease Control and the American Heart Association, as well as the American Diabetes Association, American Association for Clinical Chemistry, and the American Journal of Medicine.
