- CFS patients are more sick and have far greater consequent disability than patients with chronic obstructive lung disease or cardiac disease.
- Fewer than 16 % of sufferers in the general population are diagnosed and treated.
- The strongest predictor of the development of post infection (chronic) fatigue syndromes is the severity of the acute illness at onset. Psychological factors play no role in the development of CFS.- IACFS/ME CONFERENCE 2004.
