Healthy Life HRA
This report explains your health risks as a 52 year old male.
Your risk age compares you to other people your age and sex for all causes of death
Your target age is what your risk age could be if you made changes to your lifestyle.
Your answers point to lots of changes you can make to reduce your risks and live healthy. Making lifestyle changes can reduce your risk age by 9.4 years.
What you can do to lower your risk age:
Guidelines for good health:
- A good systolic blood pressure is less than 130.
- A good HDL is greater than 55.
- A good total cholesterol is less than 200.
- Consider losing 19 pounds over the next 12 months.
- Alcohol in moderation is best
Routine preventative services recommended for men your age:
- Get a flu shot every year.
- Have your cholesterol and blood pressure checked.

Mortality Risks of the most common causes of death:
How to lower your risks:
Your stress level is similar to the average person. Keep in mind it is still important to keep track of any sources of stress in your life. Make time to do things that help you feel well. These could include exercise, eating healthy, getting enough rest and sleep and finding a coping mechanism that works well for you (e.g. meditation, breathing exercises, prayer).
You are currently at a slightly higher level of risk due to poor sleep quality than most people. It is important for you to
- Keep a consistent sleep schedule
- Get close to 7 hours of sleep per night
- Avoid screen time (phone, tablet, or TV) just before bedtime
You are doing some good things with your diet, but some of your eating habits could be healthier. Consider making changes to what you eat and talk to your doctor before any big changes. It is best to start with small changes. Some options to consider are:
- Eating 1 more healthy food each day
- Eat 1 fewer unhealthy food each day
- Replace one sweetened drink with an unsweetened or lightly sweetened drink each day
- Replace a snack or desert with a piece of fruit or handful of nuts
- Cook a meal or vegetable with olive oil instead of butter
Your answers show no sign of depression. This is a good sign for your overall mental health.
Your answers show no signs of anxiety. This is a good sign for your overall mental health.
Body Weight Risk
Your BMI is 30.0, indicating your weight is in the obese category for adults of your height.
For your height, a normal weight range would be from 121 to 163 pounds.
People who are overweight or obese are at higher risk for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Cardiorespiratory Fitness Risk
High Risk: You have a higher than average mortality risk based upon your cardiorespiratory fitness. You may be able to improve by exercising more often at a level that increases your heart rate. Talk to your doctor about an exercise program that is right for you. For many people a good way to start exercising is to go for a walk. You can make exercise more fun by bringing a friend or a pet.
Cough and Hand Hygiene:
- You are at higher risk of contracting or spreading common diseases if you do not wash your hands often enough. Washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds is the most effective way to prevent you and loved ones from becoming infected. Hand sanitizers are a good second choice to hand washing. In addition, do not touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth. Cough into your elbow or a tissue, then wash your hands. When washing hands in a public place, use a paper towel as barrier to turn off water (and if possible to open the door) then discard the paper towel.
- If you are sick with symptoms of the cold or the flu, stay home and take care of yourself with over the counter medication. Call your local health care provider or your city or state hotline or your doctor for more information.
- If you have symptoms of shortness of breath or chest pain or other serious symptoms, you should seek medical care. Please contact your doctor or emergency room before coming in, if you can.
- Whenever possible, especially in public settings, stand or sit more than 6 feet away from people who are sick and at least 3 feet from everyone else. Substitute non-contact greetings for handshakes. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions should be vigilant and stay away from people as much as possible.
