Over the weekend some new information on ME/CFS regarding finding a cause and a diagnostic test has been announced and I was more than happy to post what I found about the research. If you haven’t heard yet, you can read all of the details from Dr. de Meirleir’s research on my post Breaking News: ME/CFS Cause & Diagnostic Test Discovered According to Researchers.
As I reported in the above linked post, the Neurotoxic Metabolite Test is a self-testing urine kit that will show whether there are too high levels of H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide) in your body/urine. According to Dr. de Meirleir’s research, he says that high levels of H2S may be the main cause of ME/CFS.
If Dr. de Meirleir’s research turns out to be correct and is backed up by further studies, finally having an actual test to diagnose ME/CFS is something that most of us patients have been waiting for for a long time. I will probably order the test and take it just to see what results I get and to provide further information to post on this website. While this is exciting news and something we have been wanting for a long time, I still tend to have my guard up somewhat and don’t want to get my hopes up.
The test will sell for around 15€, plus shipping charges. For ordering, or to get more information, please contact Protea Biopharma at firstname.lastname@example.org or go directly to the website page for the Neurotoxic Metabolite Test on Protea Biopharma.
What are your thoughts on the Neurotoxic Metabolite Test for ME/CFS? Do you think it’s too early to get excited about this news or do you think researchers have finally found the “real” cause and have found a reliable, accurate test? Please share in the comments!
