Abstract
OBJECTIVE: We developed a measure of allostatic load from electronic medical records (EMRs), which we named "Index of Cardiometabolic Health" (ICMH). METHODS: Data were collected from participants' EMRs and a written survey in 2005. We computed allostatic load scores using the ICMH score and two previously described approaches. RESULTS: We included 1865 employed adults who were 25-59 years old. Although the magnitude of the association was small, all methods of were predictive of SF-12 physical component subscales (all p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: We found that the ICMH had similar relationships with health-related quality of life as previously reported in the literature.
