The ATP Profiles test developed by Dr John McLaren-Howard (and the Mitochondrial Energy Score developed from it) has been a big deal for the chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) community. The test formed the basis for studies dating back to 2009 by Dr. Myhill, Dr. McLaren and Dr. Booth which asserted that mitochondrial dysfunction plays a major role in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
Mitochondrial dysfunction subsequently became a central theme in Dr. Myhill’s writings, website and treatment protocols. (See – The Central Cause: Mitochondrial Failure) in ME/CFS and her book (Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalitis, 2nd ed.: It’s Mitochondria, Not Hypochondria). Dr. Myhill’s website states that the ATP profiles test she’s used extensively (@ 1000 results) provides an objective test which clearly differentiates ME/CFS from healthy people.
