A family member has been suffering on an off for two years with CFS/ME symptoms. Its affected his life - work, social etc. A few months ago he went to a doctor who did a lot of PHYSICAL tests on him including blood, stomach, urine etc. There was a lot of bad bacteria in his gut. He had bad smelling wind. As a result of this the doctor prescribed a complete change of diet to a high protein and high fat type regime. ABSOLUTELY NO SUGAR at all - not even fruit. Also vitamin supplements D, C, Amino Acids and a few others I can't remember. The change has been remarkable. While not up to previous energy levels he is 90% better. He has lost weight and eats chicken, meat, fish and loads of vegetables, eggs and dairy. The gut is the body's brain and if we put rubbish in it like sugar this may be one of the results. Just one person's experience but it may help other's too.
I also want to add that I wonder whether this thread is in the wrong place being in the brain and nervous system section. If CFS is indeed connected to diet then the thread is in the wrong place. Since no one knows what it is why has it been put here?
