Abstract

This individual's Bowel Movements is generally 40% lower than normal after 300 milligrams CoQ10 By Doctors Best per 7 days. This individual's data suggests with a high degree of confidence (p=1.0243884893497E-15, 95% CI 0.202 to 0.29) that CoQ10 By Doctors Best has a weakly positive predictive relationship (R=0.25) with Bowel Movements. The highest quartile of Bowel Movements Count measurements were observed following an average 511.64 milligrams CoQ10 By Doctors Best per day. The lowest quartile of Bowel Movements Count measurements were observed following an average 312.26012793177 mg CoQ10 By Doctors Best per day.Bowel Movements is generally 40% lower than normal after a total of 312.26012793177 milligrams of CoQ10 By Doctors Best intake over the previous 7 days. Bowel Movements is generally 43% higher after a total of 511.64 milligrams of CoQ10 By Doctors Best intake over the previous 7 days.

Objective

The objective of this study is to determine the nature of the relationship (if any) between CoQ10 By Doctors Best and Bowel Movements Count. Additionally, we attempt to determine the CoQ10 By Doctors Best values most likely to produce optimal Bowel Movements Count values.

Design

This study is based on data donated by one participant. Thus, the study design is consistent with an n=1 observational natural experiment.

Data Analysis

CoQ10 By Doctors Best Pre-Processing
CoQ10 By Doctors Best measurement values below 0 milligrams were assumed erroneous and removed. No maximum allowed measurement value was defined for CoQ10 By Doctors Best. It was assumed that any gaps in CoQ10 By Doctors Best data were unrecorded 0 milligrams measurement values.

Bowel Movements Pre-Processing
Bowel Movements measurement values below 0 count were assumed erroneous and removed. No maximum allowed measurement value was defined for Bowel Movements. It was assumed that any gaps in Bowel Movements data were unrecorded 0 count measurement values.

Predictive Analytics
It was assumed that 0.5 hours would pass before a change in CoQ10 By Doctors Best would produce an observable change in Bowel Movements Count. It was assumed that CoQ10 By Doctors Best could produce an observable change in Bowel Movements Count for as much as 7 days after the stimulus event.
Predictive Analysis Settings

Data Quantity
670 raw CoQ10 By Doctors Best measurements with 136 changes spanning 1223 days from 2015-07-18 to 2018-11-22 were used in this analysis. 912 raw Bowel Movements Count measurements with 380 changes spanning 1686 days from 2014-11-05 to 2019-06-18 were used in this analysis.

Data Sources

CoQ10 By Doctors Best data was primarily collected using QuantiModo. QuantiModo allows you to easily track mood, symptoms, or any outcome you want to optimize in a fraction of a second. You can also import your data from over 30 other apps and devices. QuantiModo then analyzes your data to identify which hidden factors are most likely to be influencing your mood or symptoms.

Limitations

As with any human experiment, it was impossible to control for all potentially confounding variables. Correlation does not necessarily imply causation. We can never know for sure if one factor is definitely the cause of an outcome. However, lack of correlation definitely implies the lack of a causal relationship. Hence, we can with great confidence rule out non-existent relationships. For instance, if we discover no relationship between mood and an antidepressant this information is just as or even more valuable than the discovery that there is a relationship.
We can also take advantage of several characteristics of time series data from many subjects to infer the likelihood of a causal relationship if we do find a correlational relationship. The criteria for causation are a group of minimal conditions necessary to provide adequate evidence of a causal relationship between an incidence and a possible consequence.

The list of the criteria is as follows:
Strength (A.K.A. Effect Size)
A small association does not mean that there is not a causal effect, though the larger the association, the more likely that it is causal. There is a weakly positive relationship between CoQ10 By Doctors Best intake and Bowel Movements

Consistency (A.K.A. Reproducibility)
Consistent findings observed by different persons in different places with different samples strengthens the likelihood of an effect. Furthermore, in accordance with the law of large numbers (LLN), the predictive power and accuracy of these results will continually grow over time. 1256 paired data points were used in this analysis. Assuming that the relationship is merely coincidental, as the participant independently modifies their CoQ10 By Doctors Best intake values, the observed strength of the relationship will decline until it is below the threshold of significance. To it another way, in the case that we do find a spurious correlation, suggesting that banana intake improves mood for instance, one will likely increase their banana intake. Due to the fact that this correlation is spurious, it is unlikely that you will see a continued and persistent corresponding increase in mood. So over time, the spurious correlation will naturally dissipate.

Specificity
Causation is likely if a very specific population at a specific site and disease with no other likely explanation. The more specific an association between a factor and an effect is, the bigger the probability of a causal relationship.

Temporality
The effect has to occur after the cause (and if there is an expected delay between the cause and expected effect, then the effect must occur after that delay). The confidence in a causal relationship is bolstered by the fact that time-precedence was taken into account in all calculations.

Biological Gradient
Greater exposure should generally lead to greater incidence of the effect. However, in some cases, the mere presence of the factor can trigger the effect. In other cases, an inverse proportion is observed: greater exposure leads to lower incidence.

Plausibility
A plausible bio-chemical mechanism between cause and effect is critical. This is where human brains excel. Based on our responses so far, 0 humans feel that there is a plausible mechanism of action and 0 feel that any relationship observed between CoQ10 By Doctors Best intake and Bowel Movements is coincidental.

Coherence
Coherence between epidemiological and laboratory findings increases the likelihood of an effect. It will be very enlightening to aggregate this data with the data from other participants with similar genetic, diseasomic, environmentomic, and demographic profiles.

Experiment
All of human life can be considered a natural experiment. Occasionally, it is possible to appeal to experimental evidence.

Analogy
The effect of similar factors may be considered.
