A model proposes that the gut comes first in ME/CFS

A recent European paper proposes that chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) starts with your genes and your leaky gut but not the leaky gut you necessarily associate with the disease; the leaky gut you had before, perhaps long before, you got sick..

The authors also suggest that we may not have to look far at all for an autoimmune model for ME/CFS. Another autoimmune disease, which also may originate in the gut, and which causes enormous fatigue, hits the energy producing factories in our cells at exactly the point ME/CFS researchers are interested in. It’s also possible that oxidative stress, instead of autoimmunity, is causing energy production problems.
