    The altered daily cortisol curve is representative of altered sleeping and activity patterns, it is a consequence, not a cause.

    That's a pretty definitive statement. I'm curious, upon what is your statement founded?

    Are you familiar with the role of CRH as a common precursor to both vasopressin and cortisol?

    The same patterns can be induced in healthy people by altering sleep and activity patterns.

    Even if the patterns were exactly the same, it's quite a statement to rule out any other causes in all ME/CFS patients. Are you aware of any studies showing early (pre-six months from onset) ME/CFS patients without altered Cortisol levels? Again, what about vasopressin (look at early ME/CFS research co-authored by Straus)?

    In Serbia they must have a different idea of
    than I do here in the USA. Their subjects were 15-45 years old. Thought technically I guess it's true, 15 is a bit young...
