New hope for this frustrating syndrome

Because it's difficult to diagnose, Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) usually means frustration for both the patient and the doctor.

To make matters worse, many people once thought it was not a real illness. Now experts think about 1 to 4 percent of he population suffer from it, and it's very possible the actual numbers are much higher. If you are faced with CFIDS diagnosis, you will discover it significantly affects your work and your family life.

Symptoms of CFIDS can include crippling fatigue weariness so bone-deep you don't want to even get out of bed, flu-like symptoms, infections, muscle pain, weakness, fever, sore throat, headache, joint pain, sleep problems, changes in lymph nodes, confusion, and concentration problems.

Because these symptoms mimic many different conditions and because the main symptom, fatigue, is common in several other illnesses, be sure to rule out these possibilities before you begin any treatment :

diabetes

liver problems

Addison's disease

congestive heart failure

anemia

hyperthyroidism (Graves' disease)

hypothyroidism

mononucleosis

CFIDS often begins after you have had an infection, like a cold, bronchitis, or mononucleosis, or after a period of stress or trauma. No one knows for sure what causes it, but a virus, like herpes or the Epstein-Barr virus, or an autoimmune disorder may set it off.

But there's hope. For the first time in their history, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized testing a nutritional supplement to treat his medical condition. The supplement is called NADH, and the results are amazing.

NADH stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide plus high-energy hydrogen. Never mind that -- just remember it's a co-enzyme, a natural substance found in all living cells. Its purpose is to supply your cells with energy. the more you have, the more energetic your cells are. Without enough, your brain and muscle cells can't function properly. Recently, scientists began to explore the idea that supplying your body with more NADH could raise your energy level.

A small study at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C found that about one-third of people suffering with CFIDS were helped by 10 milligrams of NADH daily. These results so encourage the researchers that they offered NADH supplements to all the participants in a follow-up study. Positive response to the NADH jumped to an amazing 72 percent -- and there were no negative side effects.

Other tests in Europe have had similarly encouraging results. NADH supplements gave people with CFIDS more energy, endurance, and strength. It's also being tested as a possible treatment for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, and high blood pressure.

You can find NADH supplements in health food stores and on the Internet. it's currently marketed as a nutritional supplement under the brand name Enada, but it may soon be officially named a vitamin by the FDA.
