Member story: Helping Peter lower his cholesterol

Every day, Health Advocate helps people across the country improve their health, reduce their healthcare costs, meet health and wellness goals, and so much more. Here’s the story of one member, Peter, and how Health Advocate helped him lower his cholesterol and blood pressure.

The problem:

Peter was apprehensive about participating in the Wellness Program. He didn’t understand how he could benefit, other than earning points for his incentive. He soon discovered he was wrong! He learned that both his blood pressure and cholesterol were high and he needed to take action to improve them.

How Health Advocate helped:

Peter began Wellness Coaching. With his Coach’s help, he took action to begin exercising and watch his intake of high-fat and salty foods. He began to eat healthy fats and more fruits and vegetables. Within a few months, his blood pressure and cholesterol were in normal range.

Peter says: “I really appreciate my company providing Health Advocate to us; it has really helped me think in healthier terms.  I watch my blood pressure and work to keep my cholesterol down, these are things I used to never think about!”
