    Is Glandular Atrophy common in ME/cfs
    The common ones we hear about are Thyroid and sometimes Adrenal gland.
    Are some of the other glands worth looking at Pituitary,Pineal,hypothalamus,Thymus,pancreas,Gonads(male)
    Is there a systemic wide Glandular Atrophy going on?

    I don't know that there's a thing like systemic atrophy, but it seems that many do have some gladular atrophy. I know I have.

    Good link, I think this is the way to go if one has some gladular atrophy with resulting hormone deficiency. Soon I'm looking forward to trying growth hormone replacement therapy. As for testosterone I'm hesitant because it causes infertility and sexual sides like changes in libido and sexual function. maybe one day I'll change my mind though.

    Someone suggested I get my testosterone tested and I knew I saw this mentioned before
    I wonder did they follow this up or what happened to the idea
