    Do you know what criteria they used for ME? 1.4% seems a bit high.

    I am a bit concerned about that myself as a lot of people with the condition wouldn't be diagnosed meaning the prevalence rate would be higher again.

    The 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey showed a 37.6% increase in ME diagnosis over the previous year = 560,000. The data is not yet public but we were forwarded an email that Statistics Canada confirms the data.

    Health Canada's response?

    Denial of their own data.

    We got a new Health Minister yesterday. She's not a physician, but a social worker, so that may be a step in the right direction.

    Canada also has the highest MS rates in the world.
