Has anyone been tested for thiamine deficiency?

Hi all, I'm new to the forum and just like you I'm trying to figure out just what has been causing my severe problems for at least a year now.

I came across a very interesting story about a girl who was diagnosed with CFS and suffered for years before being diagnosed as having a thiamine deficiency. http://www.mecfscanberra.org.au/docs/stories/bronwyn.htm


In this case it appears that it was not a dietary deficiency but some sort of metabolic or mitochondrial defect. I also found two more people on a dysautonomia forum who were also completely cured with thiamine.

Has anyone here had their thiamine and other B vitamin levels tested? (besides B12)
