By MM Anderson, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • January 27, 2008


Objective: To determine quality of life (QOL) and health in Danish CFS patients 9 years after diagnosis.

Methods: Thirty-four adults with CFS responded to questions regarding QOL at diagnosis, and again 5 and 9 years later. At 9-year follow-up patients also responded to questions regarding health, fatigue, use of Health Care system, alcohol and exercise.

Results:

  • Two patients (6%) had recovered and 3 patients (10%) had received secondary diagnoses.
  • Overall, there was no improvement, except with depression/anxiety.
  • The order of severity among disabilities remained the same.
  • Work had the highest disability score, followed by post-exertional malaise.
  • Patients slept and rested 13.6 hours a day (mean).
  • Self-reported physical health correlated with hours sleeping and resting.
  • Rheumatic symptoms dominated the health symptoms.
  • Alcohol consumption was low, and the use of the Health Care system was modest.

Conclusion: After 9 years QOL was the same as at diagnosis, only mental health had improved.
