Whoops ! Did A GET Study Just Explain Why It DOESN’T Work In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) ?

  • Question: When does a graded exercise study explain why graded exercise is not helpful for chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)?
  • Answer: when it employs an exercise test with it.

Just as NICE was pulling back on graded exercise therapy (GET) a GET study was published showing why it doesn’t work. The authors did conclude that GET works for some patients but not others but an analysis of the study suggests that may have been understating things:  the study may actually have shown why GET doesn’t work in almost all people with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
