    They had a female, who is a real estate agent, that was diagnosed with CFS after she lost all the energy her Type A personality used to provide her. She's being treated with Procrit & it's helping her. Just an FYI. dolsgirl

    What is epoetin alfa?
    • Epoetin alfa is a man-made form of a naturally occurring protein called erythropoietin. Erythropoietin is produced in the kidney and stimulates the production of red blood cells. The amount of erythropoietin in the body may be diminished when the kidneys are damaged. Medications may also decrease the number of red blood cells.
    • Epoetin alfa is used to treat anemia by stimulating red blood cell production.
    • Epoetin alfa may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

    Until we cure this, we need more credible people to be interviewed and increase public knowledge.

    always good to hear about these little steps.

    thanks.
