The final report provides information to your clinician on whether a specific strain of Borrelia, Babesia and Bartonella is present in your cells or serum, and a quantification parameter (its Ct value, or Threshold Cycle).
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), is a long-term illness that is characterised by extreme tiredness or fatigue. CFS/ME can affect anyone but it is more common in women and usually develops during a person’s mid-20s to mid-40s.
The main symptom of CFS/ME is extreme tiredness or fatigue that cannot be explained by an underlying health condition. Other symptoms include sleep problems, muscle or joint paint, flu-like symptoms, sore throat, headaches, sore glands and problems concentrating.
The symptoms of CFS/ME can be similar to those of other health conditions so it is important to get a diagnosis through a registered healthcare professional.
