“The numbers that matter most”

What is most important for good health? Our doctors run a lot of tests that produce a variety of numbers and markes indicating all kinds of things, but which numbers are the most important to understand the state of our health?

The Washington Post posted this article today what presents a succinct guideline to what to pay attention to and what to ignore when parsing health data. This certianly isn’t the entirety of what you need to know to maintain good health, but I like how it defines what to focus on want what you should ignore.

What you eat, how much you sleep and exercise, blood pressure, blood sugar and fiber consumption are identified as important things to watch.

Not important includes your clothing size, BMI, age and macronutirents are not so important.
