What is the WebMD Wellness Profile?

The WebMD Wellness Profile is a health risk assessment tool that helps you uncover potential health risks and recommends positive steps to control your specific health risks.

Why Take the WebMD Wellness Profile?

Many health risks don’t make you feel bad until you are well on your way to a serious problem.  That is why measuring your potential risks is important.  If you find out you are at risk and receive the proper guidance on how to minimize those risks, you can actually take steps to avoid developing health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Taking the WebMD Wellness Profile requires only about 15 minutes, and it can make a huge difference in your life.  Once you’ve answered all of the questions, you will receive an easy-to-understand report.  It will outline your specific risk levels for a variety of health conditions and common risk factors, like weight and blood pressure, along with providing an action plan for reducing your risks.  Then you’ll receive instant feedback on how changing your behavior now affects your chance of developing health conditions in the future.

You will also be able to see how your WebMD Wellness Profile results compare to those of your peers of the same gender and similar age range!

What Information Should You Have Available?

To get the most accurate results possible, you should come prepared with some important health information such as:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure level
  • Blood sugar level
  • Cholesterol and triglyceride values

If you’ve had your annual physical, you can simply call your doctor for these numbers.  If you haven’t, you can still take the WebMD Wellness Profile and provide the information you do have.  Once you have your next checkup, be sure to get your most recent information and update your WebMD Wellness Profile.

Tip: For a quick and easy blood pressure reading, many pharmacies or grocery stores now have automated blood pressure machines you can use.
