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.

    Any of you get this? Do you also have OI symptoms?

    I used to before they balance me out. It was worse at night. I am on an OI protocol that is working well, I think the pee is called diabetes insipidus (or something like that). So I am on 4 to 6 salt tablets of salt (to retain the water), then Potassium 700mg a day or so but I am borderline, and florinef (prescription for OI). And A lot of water (64oz - 96oz a day). Is called a methylation panel I think, they will check your electrolytes so you know what and how much to take of salt and potasium.

    They used to tell me to drink water and the more I drank the more dehydrated, and pee more than I got in. I like the rule to use your lips: if your lips are dry then you need to drink more and electrolyte more.

    Yes.. extremely common issue of ME.

    I was peeing so much that having to wakeup and pee 6-7 times a night for ages.. a homoeopath actually fixed that issue so then I was only needing to pee once a night. (its the only ME symptom Ive had which homoeopathic med helped with).

    Im now peeing almost normally during the day after the addition of Florinef (helps one retain salt and hence water and hence also helps OI by boosting blood volume) being added to my meds.

    If you have this issue you should get it treated.. its not a symptom one needs to be living with.
