New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    At the end, some of it is in our heads?

    Hmm I don´t quite understand. I thought stress caused adrenal fatigue, be it psycholoical, oxidative, whatever... Does stress increase inflammation? (After reading medical literature and coming back)... Of course it does! :nerd:

    Needless to say, I am going to read all his Brain-Gut articles and I encourage anyone with adrenal/HPA issues to do the same.

    My melatonin is defficient, my IGF-1 is too high.

    I actually don´t buy much this guy but he proposes some interesting things. I just hope he is wrong and curing HPA dysregulation is easier than all of that :confused:

    @Beyond I googled leptin........lipkin found leptin and serpin upregulated in his study......adrenal fatigue may be another concept that is too crude for lots of us.......the more I read the more complicated it gets but also interesting.:)

    Nothing really new. The HPA axis…hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal…two of those are in the brain. :)

    Yeah @aimossy and @heapsreal you both are right but the most interesting is his theory of Adrenal Fatigue being the result of inflammation. I do not buy that what he says of EMF causing it, because most of people are functional. Mine appeared after specific negative events/triggers and worsened over time because of the stress the body endures with sleep deprivation, leaky gut/autoimmunity, psychological pressure etc

    As dannybex mentions, most of it isnt unique but what i find is he sort of puts it all together and theorizes how all these relate to each other. For me it sort of cemented everything i was already doing from googling madly for years. He does have experience of treating many others with these theories. I dont think he has the answer to cfs/me but some of the suggestions can definately help.

    Aimossy I think leptin in so closely related to the function of insulin and its sensitivity and dopamine. Other things we do to improve them will help leptin??

    I replied heaps then lost the draft,loll....hormones are a symphony involving the whole body and brain and receptors and powerful and complicated.you will probably be right.leptin is involved in the symphony.....I think its hormone and relates to hunger and energy among a bucket load of other things that's why its seems so interesting what lipkin found I only looked it up a bit today after chatting to someone about it last night.
    be wary of this Krus guy though, people selling products using and image or theory.....hope some of our super brains on the forum help critique it.
    mines gone now lol
    try tomorrow.:)o_O

    Yeah Kruse is fishy. I am neither at the level of those writings however I will cure my adrenal fatigue! You don´t need to be a scientist to do so. It is pretty covered how to cure it. The keys are adrenals and gut it seems, one needs the other to heal. I don´t know if methylation is more or less important than these.

    I know. We don´t need him, curing is easier than all of that.
