Never Ask Us if We're Hungry -- The Answer's Always No
There are three of us here and for many years, none of us ever got hungry. When our brains would turn to mush, when our faces would go numb, and we would start the invisible vibration which is the signature dance of ME/CFS, we knew we needed to eat.

    Hi all,

    CFS for 18 months now. Massive initial crash slowly improving 1-2% a month since crash.
    Many areas have improved for me. Less aches, better sleep, less fatigue but I still have CFS.

    Anyway I'm in a study that Bond university has been conducting over a 2 year period here in Australia.
    Thought I would share my results with you all. They are looking at NK cell function, basically trying to find a way of diagnosing the illness and not curing it yet.

    Natural Kill cell Activity (%) 4.3 reference range 13.8 - 34.8
    Natural killer Dim Cell(%) 78 reference range 60-88
    Natural killer Bright Cell (%) 3.75 Reference range 5-15

    definitely shows we have problems with our bodies/immune systems.

    Hi de_Foles,

    Thanks for posting your results. Congratulation on your incremental progress! My understanding is that most doctors barely even know what NK cells are. Hopefully this will change, as studies such as the one you're in start publishing some of their work.

    Best, Wayne
