ME/CFS May Be Linked To Failure In Energy Supply To The Cells

By Elise Kjørstad in Opinion.

Researchers at the University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital were part of a research team for a new study that found differences in blood samples between ME/CFS patients and healthy people.

Patients with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome, or ME/CFS, had different levels of some substances that affect energy metabolism in the cells.

The cause of ME/CFS is still unknown. The main symptom is becoming abnormally exhausted from daily chores. Rest does not help as it usually would.

Other symptoms can include muscle aches, flu-like symptoms and hypersensitivity to light or noise.

The researchers believe the new findings could indicate that the cells of ME/CFS patients are struggling to obtain enough energy.
