Could dogs smell ME/CFS? They're already doing it for Covid-19


They've been doing a pilot trial on this in Finland since September 22. If this works, I want to see them try this for LongCovid, and then try it for ME/CFS. They should create a trial to see if the dogs can, for example, separate controls, cancer patients, and LongCovid (or ME/CFS).

I don't think there's going to be a reliable diagnostic test for ME/CFS anytime soon so this could be massive for accelerating ME/CFS research but it needs to first work for Covid-19 and LongCovid.

Me/CFS is caused by many different triggers / pathogens / environmental factors . So I think it’s unlikely to have dogs smell it since it’s not a unique disease
