A breakthrough in detecting chronic fatigue syndrome
Up until now, diagnosis and treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome has been difficult and in some cases impossible to detect. First, the symptoms are invisible. And second, it is difficult for a health care provider to take the condition seriously, as CFS is not part of the medical training in many school around the country and as a result, it can be easily be ruled out by doctors. A research published by Stanford University have found the concentrations of 17 immune-signaling proteins called cytokines in patients’ blood directly relates to the severity of the symptoms. A blood test process for detections is currently under development.
