    Since becoming ill i've tested low in LDH (lactate dehydrogenase), doctors always waived it as not important so i haven't given it much thought. Today i stumbled upon a page on healthline about LDH mentioning the following:

    From wikipedia:
    A deficiency in LDH type A is also called glycogen storage disease XI.

    To me it sounds like a deficiency in LDH will exacerbate ME, or may be misdiagnosed as ME.

    Anyone else here with repetively low LDH?
