Hi. I'm Sean. This is my first time here. I'll be 34 in January. I have had cfids for 6.5 years. I am still researching whatever I can get my hands on about this dd. I want to be more pro-active now with the additional findings that have been made recently. I would like to know how any of you have gone down the road of getting diagnostic tests for various things: i.e. low molecular weight RnaseL, low glutithione, low growth hormone, etc. etc. ?? Are these things covered by insurance? Are they expensive? Who does the tests? Has anyone dramatically improved their condition with a long-term program of supplements, fighting candida, using whey, etc. etc.?? Has anyone been treated with steroid? What was the effect? Any info at all would be helpful. Please post or my email: email@example.com Thanks. much.
