From Society member Deborah Marlin:

On Saturday 8 April the first seminar for 2017 was held on the topic:

“What do genes, hormones and supplement insufficiencies have to do with ME/CFS?”

David Mitchell, a recently-retired GP who treated people with ME/CFS for over forty years, gave us a very interesting overview of his approach to the management of ME/CFS.

Professor Julius Sumner MillerHe started by showing us a brief video of Prof Julius Sumner Miller (left), who was a popular science presenter on television several decades ago. The question the professor asked frequently was Why is it so?

For David this has been a key question in his approach to assessing and treating ME/CFS symptoms. He told us about what he found when asking this question about genes, enzymes, hormones and aging, the immune system, various organs, food and vitamins/supplements. The diagram below gives a summary of the topics covered in the talk.
