Do Parents Suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Affect Their Children?

  [ 67 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Tamara Schuit • www.ProHealth.com • August 1, 2000


A study conducted by the University of Washington Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Cooperative Research Center (CFSCRC) will take a close look at how parents with CFS affect children in the household.

Current studies focus on how this debilitating disease influences those who suffer from CFS. The purpose of this newer study is to take CFS research one step further – putting the children of CFS sufferers in the research spotlight.

The CFSCRC will compare the fatigue status, functional performance, and psychological health of 12-to-17-year-old children who have a parent with CFS versus children of parents without CFS. All adults and children will be evaluated using a broad range of fatigue, functional performance, and physical and mental health measures. Based on this data, the researchers hope to answer several questions regarding children of parents with CFS:

* Do they have higher fatigue levels?
* Are there differences in pain thresholds or cognitive functioning?
* Are there higher rates of psychiatric disorders and psychosocial distress?

Researchers hope to discover whether children have predisposition to CFS due to their environment or genetics and whether these children are especially vulnerable to developing fatigue illnesses.
