  35. Fasting Triglycerides Elevated triglycerides are an independent cardiovascular disease risk factor. Factors that may contribute to elevated triglycerides include obesity and overweight, physical inactivity, cigarette smoking, excess alcohol intake and a diet very high in simple sugars (>60% carbohydrates). Certain diseases (diabetes and kidney disease) and some medications (corticosteroids, estrogens, retinoids, higher doses of beta-blockers) increase triglyceride levels. Test Your Result Standard Values Comments Triglyceride 199 mg/dL Less than 150 mg/dL Normal Emphasis is normally placed on weight reduction and increased physical activity to reduce triglycerides. 150 to 199 mg/dL Borderline 200 to 499mg/dL High 500 mg/dL or more Very High 0 Live tobacco free. 5 Evaluate your diet. Focus on portion control and eating the right type of fat. Avoid extremes by avoiding a diet that is very high in fat or very high in carbohydrates. 10 Walk 10,000 steps a day. Avoid inactivity. 25 Maintain a healthy weight. Follow the recommendations in the BMI section of this report.  Evaluate your alcohol use. More than one drink a day can harm your health. Alcohol can cause an increase in triglycerides.  Review your medications with your doctor or pharmacist. Keep your triglycerides low with 051025

  36. Participant’ s Feedback on CRA Quality

  37. CRA Results at GE Energy

  38. Key Lessons Learned From Our Efforts • The Challenge is associated with favorable trends • The results met our objectives of broad reach, low touch, • digitized, efficient, global and deep • Developing the application and testing is tedious • The program interaction is fast (< 1 minute/ month) • The program is popular - business units compete • Heroes are helpful • No early evidence of claims impact ( sample size, time) • Decide what you want to learn from the results at the • before launch • Integrate programs so that the mantra is repeated again and again and again……

  39. Live Tobacco Free • Eat 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day • Walk 10,000 Steps A Day or engage in 30+ minutes of moderate intensity exercise • Strive for a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 25
