I have CFs and wanted to know what criteria does one use to measure your level of disability?
My disablity insurance company uses the Karnofsky Performance Status Scale. You can do a search for details. Basically it has 3 categories which are broken down further by 10's on a scale of 1 to 100.
1. Able to carry on normal activity and to work; no special care needed.
2. Unable to work; able to live at home and care for most personal needs; varying amount of assistance needed.
3. Unable to care for self; requires equivalent of institutional or hospital care; disease may be progressing rapidly.
Separate names with a comma.
