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.

    I'm not sure I understand this.

    It says salivary cortisol levels are NOT a significant predictor of momentary farigue in AI patients.

    So what tests should be used?

    I was dx with AI via salivary testing. I definitely have a tough time moving in the mornings. I was under the impression that my adrenal test explained this.

    I don’t know what they mean by “momentary fatigue”. I thought that adrenal insufficiency caused chronic low energy. Some of the patients had Cushing’s sydrome or AI secondary to another condition. These could have contributed to the momentary fatigue.
