Here at NIH, regardless of our specific job, we work in an environment based on research and data. It turns out that knowing data about our own bodies and health – our own numbers – is a key factor in becoming and staying healthy.
Some numbers are obvious and we know well. Age? Check. Height? Check. Weight? Check. Other numbers are also very important. Do you know your blood pressure? Waist measurement? Cholesterol levels? How many stairs you can walk up before feeling out of breath?
Below is information you can determine yourself or ask your doctor about. Know your numbers – Your wellness is worth it!
