Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Nothing particuarly new here as a concept but this was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel design study (with cross-over) and

    I'm sure the paper is now (over)due publication. In the meantime Dr Golomb is recruiting patients for a further study of oxidative stress as a biomarker for GWS.

    I love my CoQ10, I do better on it than the active forms (ubiquinone I think is called). Brand is also important, I tried a few, settled w Nature's Bounty.

    Interesting you say that as CoQ10 is something many people here have tried including myself and haven't noticed much in the way of benefits but I also suspect many (myself included again) haven't stuck to a particularly structured regime.

    Dosage and bioavailability may be a major issue?

    This is not a surprise. People with ME and/or CFS are often deficient in CoQ10, and its been shown to reduce headaches in fibromyalgia. Bye, Alex

    Mitocvhondrial profile testing showed a severe deficiency in COQ10 in me. No noticeable difference after a period of supplementing, but i know it can take some time for levels to come up when any deficiency is noted. I keep on taking it because i hope it may help to keep me ticking over.

    Not surprised to see yet more similarities between M.E and GWI. It would be interesting to run the Acumen labs mito test on them and see what there results are in comparison to typical PWME.

    All the best, Justy.
