General practitioners acceptance of the validity of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) as a diagnosis

  [ 20 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • April 14, 1993


AIM. To identify whether general practitioners accept the validity
of a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

METHOD. An
anonymous questionnaire was sent out to 98 general
practitioners in Otago.

RESULTS. The clinical validity of
chronic fatigue syndrome was accepted by 74 (90%); 57 believed
they had sufficient knowledge about the condition to make a
differential diagnosis; 72 indicated they had had patients
with chronic fatigue syndrome in the past; 62 currently had
patients; there is a minimum prevalence rate of 167/100,000 in
the general practice population; 83 replies were received.

CONCLUSION. The 90% acceptance rate of chronic fatigue
syndrome as a clinically valid diagnosis suggests that amongst
the Otago general practitioners the controversy had receded.
The low numbers suggest that they are on the conservative end
of the diagnostic spectrum.
