Macrophages & Gaucher's disease & XMRV?

I saw the thread on macrophages on this forum which interested me because I have one mutation for gaucher's disease. You need two mutations to actually have the disease. But even with one mutation several macrophage-related enzymes are abnormal. I am wondering if this could be one of the genetic predispositions for XMRV and thus CFS?

A single guacher's mutation occurs in about 1 of 100 non Jews and in about 1 of 10 Jews (roughly, can't remember the exact proportion).

I am curious if anyone else out there has been tested for gauchers? Gaucher's symptoms include anemia, tiredness, and bone pain.
