Sweets, this is just a test (more like a reality check to me)and does not 100% determine that you are ill, although there is plenty truth to it. The best way to know your state of health is to talk to your doctor and run some tests. Most of the time though our bodies give us the signs that all is not well, we just choose to ignore them. Its not just about loosing weight, we are trying to live very health lives. Please share your score with us lets just have fun with it. Take care and God bless.
