- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) (G93.3)
- No indication of immunodeficiency (D84.9A)
The rest of page 1 was taken up with a description of my case history, containing a very accurate account of what I had told Dr Hanitsch. I was pleased to read that no assumptions or interpretations had been added, just a description of the course of my illness over the last 2-3 years as I had told it to him.
There was a description of my poor man’s tilt table test (69 bpm to 91 bpm) ending with “no indication of POTS”.
I had scored 26 points on the Chalder Scale (out of 33), 32 points on the FACT-F Subscale, and had 40/100 on the Bell scale. I fulfilled the Canadian Consensus Criteria.
There followed a section on abnormal laboratory parameters:
Albuminfraktion 68.9 P+ [55.8-66.1 %];
Gamma-Globulin i.Se 10.6 P- [11.1-18.8 %];
lmmunglobulin G 6.74 P- [7.00-16.00 g/l];
lmmunglobulin E 112.3 P+ [0.0-100.0 kU/l];
25-OH-Vitamin D3 Se 26.6 P- [50.0-150.0 nmol/l];
MCHC 36.7 P+ [31.5-36.0 g/d|];
Not knowing what any of the above means, they all seem ok to me, if any of them are outside the recommended values it is only by a little bit. The exception was vitamin D.
My other laboratory parameters were attached at the end of the report. For those who are interested in what they looked at, here is the list of things they tested, my values for all of them I presume were considered normal, or at least not abnormally out of range:
