Healthtech executive Jim Howard is our special interview guest on Episode 1641 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.
“If people really want to know about themselves, they will look at biomarker data on top of what your food intake is. It’s food and metabolic response together.”
– Jim Howard
Jim Howard is a 27-year healthtech executive with a number of successful start-ups. He currently is the CEO of Readout Health, a biomarker hardware research company in St. Louis, MO. Readout is the maker of Biosense, the first medical-grade breath ketone device designed to provide full-day feedback to patients and consumers. For the past 15 months, Jim has built the Readout company around the 3-years of research his partners have completed, building a team of 8. He is a fan of all things related to Healthspan and personally has been ketogenic for two years.
Listen in today as Jimmy and Jim chat about his personal health journey and what made him want to get involved with this project, the clinical trial last year before Biosense was released, why it’s better to measure ketones throughout the day than once a day, blood vs. breath measurements, how his product leads to better adherence to a keto lifestyle, and more.
