    Day two: "B-vitamins in ME/CFS Dr. Ingrid G. Rekeland, Bergen, Norway"

    Why on earth will a researcher from Haukeland speak about B-vitamins in ME/CFS? Is it really B-cells, or is it B-vitamins? I haven't heard they've said anything about B-vitamins before.

    It's listed in the agenda under clinical trials, - is there a trial on B vitamins ?

    In the same section is an Immunadsorbtion trial talk given by Carmen Scheibenbogen, i dont see her name in the list for the conference, pity because it would be interesting to know more about this.

    It is either a typo or it could be a major thing. I'll start digging.

    To my knowledge there has been no study on B-vits, but some patients has tried it and has been reporting back to Haukeland. What I hear from one patient is that he takes 200 mg b1, 200 mg b2, and 2x500 mg pyruvate daily. Apparently symptoms improved.

    This is all I know. Usually I have more to say when I talk to people around Haukeland. I don't know what to make of it. Does pyruvate have anything to do with b-vits?

    I wasn't sure whether to share this or not, but since the dr. is speaking about b-vits at the conference I guess it can't harm. I must emphasise that the daily treatment plan was received from a patient. It was not a recommendation to him from Haukeland. I have no clue if it is the "right" dose, if it is safe, or if it is worth tryin' at all. I can just say that it is all very cheap when I looked at iHerb.
