    I'm not sure which forum this fits in. Many ME/CFS researchers have noted a shift toward T2-cell in the immune response in ME/CFS patients. I don't remember (brain fog) reading any theories about what causes this shift. Has anyone come across any theories?

    I'm also wondering how that would relate to the theory that ME/CFS is an autoimmune disease.

    It's interesting that women tend to shift to T2 dominance in the 2 weeks preceeding their period. I wonder if that could have anything to do with more women than men having ME/CFS. Women get kind of a double T2 whammy.

    Very interesting.
    ...............

    What Cheney says about Th1/Th2 http://www.anapsid.org/cnd/diagnosis/cheneyis.html (I noticed it has been updated this year, I dont know what thou was changed).

    In my own case I have reasons to believe that I was probably Th2 dominant all (or most of my life) before I even got ME.
