I'm an ME / CFS patient who has just tested positive for D-Lactate Acidosis. I'm waiting (and may be waiting for some time) for an explanation from my consultant. Does anyone know anything about this?
D-Lactic acidosis can be treated with antibiotics or diet. Jennifer Brea made a statement in a Times interview that she had been taking antibiotics which would temporarily abate her symptoms for them only to return. I was only diagnosed because I responded to antibiotics.
Many with CFS/ME have been reported to have Bacterial Overgrowth. Luke White an American Gastroenterologist states that anyone with Bacterial Overgrowth is at risk of D-Lactic acidosis. The title of his report is 'D-Lactic acidosis more prevalent than we think'.
