The symptom project is about finding some clarity.
There are over 300 suspected symptoms of Celiac. In order to understand this disease better, we need to know just what is in that list. I want to digitize, graph, and visualize all of this data. It might be just the key bit of information that epidemiologists need to update the current suspected symptoms.
For example, anxiety and insomnia, peripheral neuropathies, and skin conditions are amongst the top reported symptoms. Yet, when most doctors or suspected patients are presented with the typical case, it only includes digestive distress. Its time to better educate the masses.
If you are willing to participate…
Please send an email to: email@example.com
- 1.) We need a full list of your symptoms before going gluten-free
- 2.) A brief explanation of illness, including duration
- 3.) And your initials. Your name will never be used publicly and is not required.
Thank you sincerely for helping us with this project. The more information we can gather, the more hope we have for helping those less knowledgeable to identify Celiac and alleviate suffering.
And, for a laugh, we currently have three participants in the following graph. It could be much more conclusive if we could conjure some participation from the outside world.
