In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re talking about ways that you can take charge of your own health data and measure what you want, when you want with at-home testing paired with a data-science app.

My guest is Lola Priego, founder of Base. She got frustrated with a personal health challenge and used her extensive tech background, medical training and creative problem solving to find a solution. That solution not only helped her; it’s now helping many others.

She realized how access to personal health data was key to get to the root cause of symptoms and improve with nutritional, lifestyle and supplement changes.

So, she developed a data-driven approach to health monitoring. Base applies tech and data science capabilities to make healthcare more affordable and accessible. It’s a data-driven approach to sleep, stress, energy, and diet with lab testing and data-science.

“We definitely see a lot of people desperate,” Lola says. “I was desperate myself, but I was even more frustrated, just seeing all of the tools available at a big tech company that were not used for the right things.”

Base offers science-based results and recommendations based on continuous blood and saliva at-home testing. It’s an at-home bio-marker testing paired with an app for tracking.

“We believe in continuous monitoring and testing to get to the root cause of your symptoms or to just monitor the things that you care about,” Lola says. “Continuous testing is the way to improve, really learn about your body and learn what things work for you. Because it's not a one size fits all.”
