Does the weather influence Meniere's disease?
Our most exciting finding to date is that the weather really does influence the symptoms of Meniere's. By collaborating with the Met Office we were able to show that both low atmospheric pressure and high humidity result in a worsening of an individuals symptoms and result in a higher risk of an attack.
The full research report of our weather findings can be found here.
We are now on version 3 of the app and we have collected some great data so far - so a massive thanks to everyone who has contributed.
Who is using the Meniere's Monitor?
We are delighted to have users from across the globe using the Meniere's Monitor. Whilst the majority of our users come from the UK and the USA you can see we've got people from lots of different countries:
We have slightly more women than men using the app - two-thirds of current users are women.
The average age of our users is 48.
What analyses are we going to perform in the future?
We have a number of analyses planned that will look at how the following influence the symptoms of Meniere's:
We also hope to investigate potential differences between people diagnosed at different ages and those who report headaches during an attack versus those who don't.
