Cellular energy production

Perhaps the most striking clue Davis has uncovered thus far is the ability of plasma from ME/CFS patients to make healthy controls’ cells look like ME/CFS cells when stressed, and the ability of plasma from healthy controls to rejuvenate ME/CFS patients’ cells. Davis has found that pyruvate, a substance which bypasses glycolysis, and ATP – a signaling molecule (outside the cell) – makes ME/CFS patients cells look healthy again. (Warning: loading up your body with pyruvate and/or ATP could make you very, very sick.)

  • Has some hope in the cell not having irreversible damage.

  • So many great minds working on this and the NHS still only treat CFS with psychobabble because of the stranglehold of psych theories.

  • Still reading thanks for sharing.

  • Imperative that biological research brings results or decades more psych who are now preparing for a transfer into Medically Unexplained Symptoms.

    If science cannot find a biomarker then quack hypothesis will fill the void because they have the backing of the health insurance industry.
