New Test Could Revolutionise Diagnosis Of Chronic Fatigue

Australia

Aimee De Lurant’s battle with chronic fatigue syndrome often leaves her bed ridden, unable to concentrate or even move.
The 25-year-old can’t work and has a limited social life as a result of the condition, which at its worst causes symptoms including excruciating pain and extreme exhaustion.
“I can’t get out of bed, I can’t lift my head up. I have to be in a darkened room. The lowest setting on an iPhone brightness is too bright,” said Ms De Lurant.
The neuroimmune disease is also called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and it’s believed many people who have it may not be diagnosed.
“There’s no actual way of diagnosing chronic fatigue syndrome other than using the international consensus criteria which goes through a list of symptoms that you have to have to be diagnosed with it by your GP,” said Dr Mike Musker from the SA Health and Medical Research Institute.
“The study that we’re doing is looking at biomarkers that might help with that diagnosis.”
