I'm working on a theory of ME, and it suggests that patients with ME would be at greater risk for the development of age related macular degeneration. I emphasize this is, right now, just a hypothesis, and no one should be worrying about this. My question is basically whether or not you have ARMD in your family (and if you know which kind, wet or dry, please list). If you do not, please say that too. Also, if you have it yourself, and if any relatives who have it also have ME or what may be ME-related disease. It does run in my family. @Valentijn - I know you aren't ready to do much analysis yet, but I wonder if there is any overrepresentation of ARMD snps in the ME population?
