8WW® Report Overview Over the next few pages we will review your 8WW results and wellness evaluation. We will review the key indicators to assess your overall health from a: –Physical standpoint. –Chemical standpoint. –Emotional standpoint. This assessment is important because it allows you to understand: –Your risk factors for developing chronic diseases. –How fast your body is aging. –The overall quality of your health. Once you understand this important assessment, it will act as a tool to help motivate you to move in the direction of better health & vitality.
8WW® Overall Score Your 8WW score is based on 15 elements that are detailed throughout this report. Each element is a key determinant in how well you are aging. Each element is ranked from 1 to 7. 7 is the best score possible. This gives you a total possible score of 105. If an element is marked in red in the body of this report, it was part of your overall 8WW score. In additional to this report, refer to your 8WW manual appendix for further additional information regarding all data that is collected to track your progress on the 8WW program.
Assessment Summary Intracellular H20: an indication of overall cell health higher is better. Ideally this number should be above 50%. High Sensitivity CRP (C Reactive Protein): is a blood inflammatory marker. Its the smoke before the fire in your cardiovascular system. An increase in inflammation in the body over long periods is unhealthy. Ideal is less than 0.5. Homocysteine: An amino acid that at elevated levels has been linked with cardiovascular disease. Elevated levels are also seen in B12 and folic acid deficiencies, two very important vitamins. Ideal is 5.0 or lower. Health Satisfaction Score: A subjective survey that you completed reflecting how satisfied you are with your chemical, physical, and emotional health. Higher is better. Maximum Score of 150. Medical Symptoms Score: A subjective survey that you completed reflecting various symptoms that you have. This score also reflects which organ systems are under stress, such as your cardiovascular system or your digestive system. Lower is better. Minimum score is 0 and Maximum is 150.
Biomarkers of Aging Lean Body Mass % (LBM%): –Also known as muscle mass –#1 biomarker of aging –75% or higher is ideal for men –70% or higher is ideal for women Fat Mass %: –Body fat or adipose tissue –This % should decrease on the 8WW program –25% or lower is ideal for men. –30% or lower is ideal for women. –Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific LBM% ranking (1 thru 7) Phase Angle –Cell health in degrees –Increased phase angle = Increased health –Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific phase angle ranking (1 thru 7) Body Mass Index (BMI) –A tool for indicating weight status in adults –Utilizes your total weight and height in a mathematical formula –A BMI over 26 classifies you as overweight –A BMI over 30 classified you as obese –Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific BMI ranking (1 thru 7) Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) –Total calories burned at rest per day –The more lean you are, the higher your BMR –Higher is typically better –Proportional to overall weight (lower weight, lower BMR)
Biomarkers of Health Your diastolic blood pressure (the # on the bottom of your blood pressure reading) is one of our 8WW overall assessment values; Ideal is 80 or less. Ideal waist to hip ratio is 0.8 or less for women and 0.95 or less for men.
Cardiovascular Risk Indicators HDL is one of the classes of lipoproteins that carry cholesterol in the blood. HDL is considered to be beneficial because it removes excess cholesterol and disposes of it. Hence HDL cholesterol is often termed good cholesterol. The test for HDL measures the amount of HDL-cholesterol in blood.cholesterol LDL is a type of lipoprotein that carries cholesterol in the blood. LDL is considered to be undesirable because it deposits excess cholesterol in walls of blood vessel and contributes to hardening of the arteries and heart disease. Hence LDL cholesterol is often termed bad cholesterol. The test for LDL measures the amount of LDL cholesterol in blood. (your LDL values can be found on your data tables. They are not depicted on this graph).cholesterolheart disease Triglycerides are the body's storage form for fat. Most triglycerides are found in adipose (fat) tissue. Some triglycerides circulate in the blood to provide fuel for muscles to work. Extra triglycerides are found in the blood after eating a mealwhen fat is being sent from the gut to adipose tissue for storage. The test for triglycerides should be done when you are fasting and no extra triglycerides from a recent meal are present. Cholesterol is a substance (a steroid) that is essential for life. It forms the membranes for cells in all organs and tissues in your body. It is used to make hormones that are essential for development, growth and reproduction. It forms bile acids that are needed to absorb nutrients from food. A small amount of your bodys cholesterol circulates in the blood in complex particles called lipoproteins. The test for cholesterol measures all cholesterol (good and bad) that is carried in the blood by lipoproteins. Cholesterol/HDL and Triglyceride/HDL ratios are key indicators to cardiovascular health and are much more indicative of heart disease than is cholesterol alone. The higher the ratio, the higher the risk for cardiovascular disease. Ideal Chol/HDl ratio is 3 or less; Ideal Tri/HDL ratio is 2 or less. Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific ranking (1 thru 7).
Blood Sugar Related Tests We consider your blood sugar tests to be extremely important which is why all three elements below rank as part of your overall 8WW score. Blood sugar irregularities lead to a host of health related conditions and maintaining proper blood sugar levels is an important goal on 8WW. Fasting Blood Glucose: An increase in glucose levels is often associated with pre- diabetes; ideal range is mg/dl. Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific ranking (1 thru 7). Hemoglobin A1c: This test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months. It does this by measuring the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin. As glucose circulates in the blood, some of it spontaneously binds to hemoglobin A (the primary form of hemoglobin in adults). Hemoglobin is a red protein that carries oxygen in the red blood cells (RBCs). Once the glucose is bound to the hemoglobin A, it remains there for the life of the red blood cell (about 120 days). The more glucose that is in the blood, the more that binds to hemoglobin A. This combination of glucose and hemoglobin A is called A1c (or hemoglobin A1c or glycohemoglobin). A1c levels do not change quickly but will shift as older RBCs die and younger ones take their place. Ideal range: %. Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific ranking (1 thru 7). Fasting Insulin: Excess levels of insulin are probably the greatest single factor that accelerates the aging process. Indicative of abnormal glucose metabolism, fasting insulin often increases as we age. Ideal level: < 15 uIU/mL Refer to your 8WW assessment summary page for your specific ranking (1 thru 7).
