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.

    My results from a couple of years back shows 728 nmol/L (545-3370)

    I've found normal ranges vary greatly on different websites:
    776 - 1784 nmol/L
    Red cell folate (reference range 360-1400 nmol/L)
    158 - 1099 nmol/L

    Using my lab it would be within range, low on the first one above and sufficient on the last one.

    Does it specify the form of folate? How much is folic acid, how much is methyl tetrahydrofolate? If you don't know, may I suggest you ring the path lab? Bye, Alex, Brisbanite

    I'm pretty sure it's 100% methyleneterahydrofolate. They have a separate test for red cell folic acid. Done by QML.

    all this talk of folate supplementation and nobody can comment on these levels?
