My nephew Ebaad was just three years old when he was diagnosed with Nephrotic syndrome, a kidney disorder that causes the body to pass excess protein into the urine. All of us have small blood vessels in our kidneys that filter waste and excess water from our blood - nephrotic syndrome is usually caused when those blood vessels are damaged. Managing the disease is tricky, as our family soon learned. One of the biggest challenges was the need to constantly test protein levels in his urine, since diet didn’t offer a clear predictor as to what would spike his levels. Part of the diagnostic process for him was to visit a lab for testing multiple times a week then waiting 1-2 days for the results. We soon discovered how burdensome, demanding, and ineffecient this process was, especially with such a young child. There were many struggles - the results weren’t always accurate, we could never establish a clear relationship between his diet and medication dosage in relationship to the progression of the disease, the delay for testing results, and more. As hard as we tried, it seemed impossible to get right. The worst part was the effect it had on Ebaad and how it truly impacted his childhood. We soon discovered the capacity to simplify the process with a urine dipstick, so testing could be done from the comfort of home and with results delivered in as little as two minutes. Results could be logged online, and shared with doctors digitally - and all at the fraction of a cost.
This is how DIAGNOX was born.
In 2018, we officially brought the idea of bringing the lab into the home. Our mission was to empower and help people and their families around the world by providing cost-effective, easy-to-use, and clinical-grade wellness testing. This testing would help with everything from UTIs, to kidney or liver disorders, vaginal infections, and other health issues. We aim to provide the tools, testing, and education to empower people to better understand their bodies and their health, making wellness more accessible to all. Shortly after the Covid-19 pandemic began,we all learned the importance of at-home testing and about the dire need to take charge of our health. At Diagnox, we promise to strive to push the frontiers of healthcare with novel products and innovative technologies to bring a better tomorrow.
