Dr. Dominic D’Agostino has joined as an Advisor
Readout Health, a biomarker hardware research company and manufacturer of Biosense™ fat burn monitoring system to give real time feedback on nutrition and lifestyle, today announced that leading longevity scientist Dr. Dominic D’Agostino has joined the company as a Readout Health Advisor. Dr. D’Agostinois a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine runs the website Keto Nutrition, and has been on over 200 podcasts talking about metabolic health.
“I’m excited to work with Readout Health. What’s neat about Biosense breath ketones is that it appears to be a better proxy for fat burning in the fasted state.”
Dr. D’Agostino is also a Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). His laboratory develops and tests metabolic-based strategies for targeting CNS oxygen toxicity (seizures), epilepsy, neurodegenerative diseases, brain cancer and metastatic cancer.
The main focus of his lab over the last 12 years has been investigating the anticonvulsant and neuroprotective mechanism of the ketogenic diet and ketone metabolite supplementation. This approach can be used to treat a wide variety of pathologies linked pathophysiologically to metabolic dysregulation. Other areas of interest include researching metabolic-based drugs for cancer.
He was a research investigator and crew member on NASA’s Extreme Environment Mission Operation (NEEMO 22) and has a personal interest in environmental medicine and methods to enhance safety and physiological resilience in extreme environments. His research is supported by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Department of Defense (DoD), private organizations and foundations.
“Fat oxidation therapies are expanding into many therapeutic areas. Adding strong advisors is critical to align our R&D resources to meet this expanding need for Biosense in the consumer, clinical, and research settings. We are delighted to have Dom D’Agostino, PhD.support our mission.” Jim Howard, CEO of Readout Health.
Readout Health Solution to Cardiometabolic Health
With over 34 million Americans with type 2 diabetes and 88 million at risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, poor metabolic health continues to be an alarming national concern. Metabolic conditions like excess body fat, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure can lead to serious health complications and early death. Fortunately, early treatment and lifestyle changes can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. Making even small changes to food choices and physical activity can help you reach and stay in a state of fat oxidation, a proven way to boost overall metabolic health. Biosense® provides the critical, real-time insight you need to learn how well your own metabolism burns fat for fuel in response to your lifestyle choices throughout the day. Supported by Biosense® personalized analysis, you can efficiently reach a sustained depth of fat burn to meet your metabolic health goals.
