Re: Never Hungry & No Appetite

Hello adrian01 Sorry for the delay in posting this reply. Losing weight and not being able to eat enough is a huge problem in CFS. Children especially can find nausea an issue which all too often leads to low intake, consequently affecting their weight and growth. My experience is that the nausea an...

Re: ME & Type 2 Diabetes

Hello Jennywren Your GP is absolutely right that your poor diabetes control, with constant high blood sugars, is most certainly impacting on your ME and vice versa. The symptoms of high BS are tiredness and lethargy, which can only be making the ME worse. I am sorry to hear that you are in this Catc...

Re: Magnesium supplements & spray 4 M.E weakness

Hello Soulpoet I am sorry to hear that you are now less well and physically weaker. It can be very unclear what to do for the best, and relapses can be hard to understand when you seemed to be doing well previously. Your situation certainly does highlight the frustrations and difficulties in our lac...

Re: Ideas for a Low Carb Diet

Hello Please do speak with your doctor (or dietitian if you have one), before changing how much carbs you are eating. When you have type 2 diabetes and are insulin treated you will have the risk of your blood glucose (sugar) going too low . When you eat carbohydrates these are digested in the stomac...

Re: Never Hungry & No Appetite

Hello Young Jenny Thank you for getting back to me. I would recommend you ask your GP to refer you to a dietitian with your issues of delayed gastric emptying and low body weight/difficulty in keeping to a healthy weight. A dietitian will have the medical understanding of this condition and the pote...

Re: Why can't I loose weight

Hello suedodkin I am sorry to hear how you are struggling with your weight. You are doing well to be managing 7000 steps a day. Using a pedometer is a helpful objective measure in CFS to avoid unintentionally overdoing things as well as the usual use of doing enough. Many of my non-CFS patients who ...

Re: Taking Vitamin D supplements

Am I safe taking, say, ONE multi-vit tablet a day which on the packet says 100% RDA for Vit D? Hello goblinff If the brand of multivitamin says it contains 100% RDA or 10 micrograms Vitamin D that supplement is absolutely safe and it is recommended that you do have the supplement as you are having s...

Re: Quick, nutritious and low cost

I think there will be many who identify with your question. Having CFS/ME can mean financial hardship, or constraints, and lack of energy will compromise a person’s ability to shop more regularly or spend long on food preparation. Eating itself can be a lot of effort. I thoroughly recommend reading ...

Re: Would love some suggestions re food issues

Hello taniaaust1 I’m sorry to read of the many different medical conditions you are coping with. It is clearly very stressful and distressing for you. As well as ME you mention you are being treated for other conditions which, while probably not related to your ME, are very important to you, for ins...

Re: Taking Vitamin D supplements

A comment was made in one of the diet threads that may have been read as suggesting taking 10000 iu of Vitamin D is good for CFS. Unfortunately I had not been able to respond to the comment before the thread was locked and it was important I did write a response. Hence the opening of a new thread. I...
