Is Ubiome introducing a new biomarker or diagnostic for ME?

"The patented technology involves diagnosing an endocrine system condition such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, metabolic disease, obesity, and Type I and II diabetes, and generating a therapy model using biological samples from uBiome’s proprietary database."

This issuance will lead to further development in predicting the likelihood of occurrence of endocrine system conditions in individuals and in designing therapies for these endocrine system conditions, which may include the modification of the microbiota using prebiotics and probiotics.

Together, these potential impacts could improve the treatment and management of endocrine system conditions in individuals.

This could potentially help some with mild ME/CFS reverse their illness before they get to the moderate or severe stages.

Although it sounds like they are still gathering enough information to be able to make the distinction between the different microbiota's in these diseases and healthy people.

Yeah, I am skeptical but nonetheless was happy to see someone else doing something which may be of benefit.

I agree. The more the better. I personally think the gut microbiome is going to be HUGE in putting ME/CFS into remission.

The more research that's done on it, the sooner I think researchers will make some much needed connections to low grade brain inflammation (as Jared Younger has found), immune system dysfunction, mitochondrial dysfunction ( as Fluge and Mella and others have found), etc.
