The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    I just got lab results based on urine and spit testing from a couple weeks ago.

    Cortisol
    TIME - LEVEL (NORMAL RANGE)
    6:30AM - 6.1 (7.0-10.0) LOW
    10:30AM - 2.9 (3.0-6.0) LOW
    4:35PM - 2.9 (2.0-4.0)
    9:00PM - 1.9 (0-1.5) HIGH

    SUBSTANCE - LEVEL (NORMAL RANGE)
    DHEA - 324.0 (33.0-496.1)
    Epinephrine - 7.7 (7-12)
    Norpepinephrine - 29.5 (30-45) LOW
    Dopamine - 171.5 (115-175)
    Serotonin - 133.1 (120-185)
    Glycine - 1,570.0 (455-980) HIGH
    GABA - 6.8 (4.7-7.0)
    Glutamate - 43.3 (15-32) HIGH
    PEA - 35.3 (30-70)
    Histamine - 18.6 (14-24)
    Creatinine - 125.2 (28.0-259.0)

    The doc said it looks like my inhibitory stuff isn't working properly, so he wants to bring those up to get into balance with the excitory stuff, then look at whether they both need to be brought down together. He's got me taking Taurine, 5-hydroxtryptophan, L-theanine, N-acetylcysteine, Alpha-Lipoic acid, and some co-factors for a week, then seeing what else is necessary.
