    Has anyone gotten this test (ATP profile)?
    Does it help prove the fatigue in order to get disability?
    Is this consideredition a Biomarker of cfs that will prove cfs to disability?
    Thanks for any information!

    Here is the relevant part from SSR 14-1p. I recommend reading through the whole thing to get an understanding of how they approach CFS cases:

    So I think the answer to your question is "maybe".

    Thanks! Looking to prove the amount of fatigue I have. Hoping someone can tell me they sent this test result to disability and was approved.

    I think they would consider it for research and novelty only,not evidence.

    I have considered this test myself, it is fairly expensive around 300 quid and I think you need to get someone to take your blood to send off that may include further fees.
    Think I will get a lactate test meter instead
    My clinical picture is further complicated in that I may have a rare inherited mitochondrial disease
