Continuous glucose monitoring to optimize health

Episode 73: Live Long and Master Aging

Molly Maloof is a medical doctor based in San Francisco, where she serves as the Head of Medical Science for Sano Intelligence, a company developing a real-time continuous glucose monitoring patch. Dr. Maloof is a strong proponent of using biomarkers, particularly glucose levels, which she describes as the “ultimate lifestyle biomarker,” as a tool to improve a person's health and nurture their longevity.

By analyzing specific biomarkers, which also include vitamin D levels, sex hormone metabolism and cortisol metabolism, Dr. Maloof’s private medical practice focusses of lifestyle changes for her patients.

In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, she discusses how a person's blood glucose levels can affect their daily lives, why she believes our bodies need a break from food throughout the day, and the lifestyle habits that promote long, healthy lives.
