Project #33474 - Nutrition 150

For this week's final discussion, you are expected to do a health risk assessment (scroll down to see the link below), and bring to discussion what you've learned about reducing risks for conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and/or obesity. .

A major goal of this course has been to give you tools to make better choices for yourself, and to allow you to improve your lifestyle and your long term health outcomes. I hope you've acquired some new health and diet habits that will help you achieve the goal we all want---a long and healthy life.

Take the online health assessment (I've provided the link below). This assessment allows you to plug in some answers and data, and assess for several risk factors for disease---the Washington U assessment, takes the data you've entered for heart disease risks, for example, and it can use that same data to further evaluate your risks for a condition such as Type 2 diabetes. I would like for you to assess for heart disease (1st) and then for at least one other condition. However, if you have a compelling reason (family history for example) to assess for something other than heart disease, you still need to do two assessments. To select another health risk assessment, think about your family's medical history. Does high blood pressure (hypertension) run in your family? Does a parent or sibling have Type 2 diabetes? Do you have a parent or sibling with some form of cancer? Think about these kinds of issues as you decide what other condition you want to assess in terms of your own risks.

No online tool is perfect---and not everything you learn will be a perfect fit for you, but this tool is designed to give you some reasonable, basic information about your health status. No tool takes the place of getting an annual physical exam, and talking with your famlily doctor about health concerns and ways to reduce risks!

Disease Risk Assessment from Washington Univerity's School of Medicine

When you've completed the assessment, (whichever two conditions you want to assess for), 1) share the types of risk assessments you decided to do; 2) share any recommendations you learned to reduce risks; 3) reply/respond to the posting of at least one other person.
