This week I sit down with Lola Priego, founder and CEO of Base. Base is a first-of-its-kind health lab and tracker that uses data science paired with at-home testing to help people feel, look and be their best. Learn about the best lab biomarkers that pinpoint the root causes of what’s actually going on with your body, telling you what you need to do for issues like anxiety, hormone balance, stress and sleep.

Lola is the Founder and CEO of Base, the first health tracker that uses a data science app paired with at-home testing to help people feel better. Prior to founding Base, Lola was a software engineer at Amazon, Facebook and Instagram where she was focused on improving network performance. She later went on to be the Head of Engineering at a Khosla backed startup within the lab industry space. Through her own personal health journey, Lola realized that a major discrepancy in the healthcare system is the lack of access to data around one’s health. She founded Base as a way to help people understand why they are feeling off with a data-driven approach. Base helps those users that can’t sleep, are fatigued, brain fogged or are looking for the optimal personalized diet.

Originally from Spain, Lola studied medicine for a year before transferring to engineering at the Technical University of Madrid. She then came to the United States to study at the Illinois Institute of Technology and received her Master’s Degree in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. In her free time, Lola started a project through the organization More than Me where she goes to Liberia and teaches girls to code with tablets that she uniquely designed to work offline. 

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • All about how Base tests and identifies your biomarkers + the data they compile to help heal your underlying hormonal imbalances
  • The best labs and action steps for hormone balance, stress, anxiety, sleep, and libido
  • Which macronutrient is crucial for hormone development
  • What the future looks like for biomarker technology and functional medicine
  • How creating clear head space and practicing mindfulness can help rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit
