Chronic Fatigue's debilitating symptoms affect more than 14 million people between the ages of 17-69, according to the CDC. Women are 20 times more likely to develop CFS than breast cancer. And it may be one of the most under-diagnosed health problems we have.
Now, for the first time ever, physicians from Georgetown University Medical Center have discovered a potential way to diagnose the disorder. The new findings, which suggest that a simple urine test may facilitate diagnosis of CFS and help doctors measure disease activity, are being presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Meeting in Chicago by Dr. Joseph Bellanti, GUMC.
GUMC doctors' groundbreaking CFS research has involved the use of ENADA NADH, a dietary supplement. Results published earlier this year, and covered extensively in the media, found that CFS patients taking ENADA were four times more likely to show improvements compared to those taking a placebo.
