How does it work?
Insight into your health and vitality
Quite a few diseases and ailments are caused by only ten factors. What are your personal risks? For example, 25% of the Dutch population between the ages of 30 and 70 has high total cholesterol. Once you know how healthy and vital you really are, you know what kinds of improvements you can make.
You can easily put together your own personal health check using the various online questionnaires and home tests of your choice.
A total of 64% of participants are motivated after completing the check to start working on their health. For example, 76% improve their diet and 59% start getting more exercise using the tips from the check!

Via your insurer you can do the following modules of the Personal Health Check free of charge. You can choose to add additional modules – at your own expense. You can see those modules under ‘Extra modules’.
When you participate in the Personal Health Check, you create a personal health environment on an online, secure platform. Only for you. From here you can start the online questionnaires, enter your measurements (height, weight, waist circumference and blood pressure) and view your results. Here you will also find useful tips to get started. Independently or with professional parties that have been selected for you to work with. Everything without obligation and only if you want to.
Tell us more about your exercise, nutrition, smoking and alcohol behavior and relaxation. But also about your medical history and whether there are diseases or disorders in your family. It is an online questionnaire that will take you about 20 minutes. We mainly look at factors that influence your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and mental problems. So that you know what you can do yourself to improve this yourself. Note: You may not be able to list all your specific health problems in the questionnaire.
You will measure your BMI & waist circumference because they give a good impression of your health. An excessive waist size and being overweight increases your risk of cardiovascular disease. These values therefore tell a lot about your risk of, for example, cardiovascular disease.
You will measure your blood pressure & heart rate because they give a good impression of how your heart and blood vessels are operating. These values therefore say a lot about your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are common diseases. Every day 1000 people are admitted with problems such as a heart attack or brain hemorrhage. Fortunately, many problems can be prevented by adjusting your lifestyle. For example, by not smoking, exercising enough, and maintaining a healthy weight. With this module, a number of additional questions are asked in the online questionnaire and you receive the unique checkbox with a home test to do a finger prick by yourself, when it suits you. The blood is then tested for your cholesterol and blood sugar levels. In your health report you will see the values and you will receive personal advice on how you can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Sleep is more important than many people know. Poor sleep increases the risk of diseases such as obesity, stroke, depression and type 2 diabetes. Poor sleep can manifest itself in various sleep complaints or even disorders, and can become a chronic problem. Good and healthy sleep consists of sufficient hours of good quality sleep.
The need for hours of sleep is related to age, among other things, and decreases over the life course. This means that there is not one recommended sleep duration, but that a healthy sleep duration can be different for each individual. This module gives you insight into your sleep quality, so that you know how they can start each day well rested and fit. Even if you have irregular working hours.
Everyone is sometimes busy, anxious or depressed. That in itself is nothing special. We only speak of a disorder if a psychological complaint interferes with daily life.
Disorders come in all shapes and sizes and often have a major impact on daily life. The three most common complaints are: not being able to sleep well, worrying and too much stress. This can have unpleasant consequences. When the complaints become a disorder, every day is a challenge. It is then difficult to lead a normal life, to maintain contacts, to go to school or to work.
The online questionnaire* looks at anxiety, depression and burnout. If it turns out that you experience more complaints than you should, you will be referred to parties or professional guidance that can help you further.
*The questionnaire has been scientifically validated.
This module consists of a combination of the questionnaire and home tests. The questionnaire contains questions about kidney disease. It also asks whether kidney diseases run in your family. You receive the unique checkbox with a home test to perform a finger prick (the same as for your cholesterol and diabetes profile) and urine test. You send both tubes by post. You will see the results in your personal health environment. With this test, you can reliably discover whether there is an (increased) risk of kidney damage.
Vitamin D is important for our health: it strengthens the immune system and is good for your bones and muscles. Studies show that with good vitamin D levels, there is a lower risk of several serious conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. In addition, there seems to be a link between vitamin D, corona and respiratory infections. Further research into this is currently underway. Although there is no incontrovertible evidence yet, it seems advisable to check vitamin D levels. Module vitamin D consists of a home test. You receive the unique checkbox with material for the finger prick and send the tube by post. In your personal health environment, you then see your value with corresponding advice. Is your value too low? Then you will receive tips on how to increase your vitamin D.
