Many people suspect that inflammation plays a major role in both ME/CFS and fibromyalgia yet standard tests are usually negative. However, a new inflammation test being developed at Stanford by a researcher (who’s also doing work on ME/CFS) could change that.
This more sophisticated test indicates that immune systems that are “wired and tired”; i.e. exhausted – as ME/CFS patient’s systems appear to be – may be the most inflammatory of all.Check out that plus some exciting work that aims to uncover a potential mitochondrial explanation for the immune exhaustion present in a Simmaron Research Foundation sponsored blog:
Over a million users visited Health Rising’s 1,000 blogs, posts and pages last year. HR was able to achieve this with a small budget (@ $40,000/year) which supported one full-time and one part-time person, several volunteers (and one busy website).
The difference Health Rising could make, however, could be so much greater. Please support Health Rising with your recurring (as low as $5/month) or one-time donations, and help it spread the word on these disease’s needs, their findings and treatments. Find out more here..
