Suggestions based on Symptoms Alone

The strong associations found with the End Products resulted in a reader asking “Can’t you create a page of recommendations based on symptoms alone?”

This took me back a little – what!!!  Then I realized that it was possible.  The process is simple:

  • From the symptoms, determine the End Products with a rough t-score of 3 or more
    • THIS IS BASED ON CONTRIBUTED UBIOMES with SYMPTOMS
  • Get all of the bacterias associated with those End Products
  • Assume that the t-score is a proxy on how short or high that these bacteria are
  • Send this collection of bacteria and shifts off to the recommendation engine…

Voila you have suggestions!  What they are worth is another question — the End Product is still a beta concept, this page would be pre-beta, i.e. an alpha concept.

With the above disclaimers, let us go to show how you can play around with it.

Pick your symptoms

I would suggest working from most frustrating to least frustrating. Add them one at a time.

Go to  http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/Data/SymptomEndProductExplorer 

I picked

sample4

A new page opened

sample5

I add another symptom

sample6

and Repeat

sample7

Bottom Line

This was an interesting challenge — it has logic and science behind. It does not have any clinical experience yet.  I suspect that I will keep adding data… and more important, users will keeping adding ubiome WITH SYMPTOMS.

The above depends on those ubiomes with symptoms.
