The progress in developing useful diagnostic applications based on microbiome testing is still behind expectations. Nevertheless, microbiome-based diagnostic and therapeutic applications are possible and will be the next step.
We are starting pre-screening our candidates to find qualified participants, based on prior test results and ability to accurately report information.
Participants will be asked to submit their samples to uBiome on as different days in terms of their well-being/mood/symptoms as possible. MEBO is a condition of ups and downs. One day you may be completely odor-free, the next day you may have severe odor episodes - called flares. Our participants will be asked to submit their first sample if they felt they experienced symptoms, or had a day or two different from average. Study participants will be asked to submit responses to our questionnaire about those days.
We will privately follow up with suggestions to improve their wellbeing.
Our new Life-quality Test questionnaire will provide a measure for severity of Metabolic Breath and Body Odor and PATM symptoms.
Here is the first version and we welcome all suggestions and ideas the community may have.
We are all different. We respond in our own unique ways to what we eat, breathe, feel and do. And all these environmental influences accumulate over a long period of time impacting our health.
While genomic data and proteomic analyses do not tell the whole story of what might be happening inside our body, metabolic profiling can give a snapshot of how the body works, providing a glimpse into the chemistry between us and our microbiomes.
From balloons inserted into stomach or colon to the dreaded colonoscopy, digestive diagnostic procedures are not fun. Tracking diet and symptoms, too, is tedious and frustrating - unless, like a mouse, you can be isolated in a chamber linked to analyzers that automatically measure everything for you ...
Can we recognize if people around us are stressed, anxious or fearful without observing their facial expressions, body language and actions or hearing their voice and messages? What about our own stress - assuming we don't rely on heart rate, blood pressure, dry throat, sweating, drops or surges in energy? Yes, we can - by using our nose - as humans, too, recognize and transmit their emotions through chemical senses ...
