Description

The cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) has been a mystery for decades.  Over the years the clinical definition and treatment of CFS has changed and caused much confusion to patients and medical practitioners alike.  Lack of, or minimal  macropatholgy seen in CFS patients propagates poor patient care, diagnosis, and outcomes.  However, a look at micropathology at the cellular level in CFS patients strongly suggests mitochondrial dysfunction is to be the root cause of severe fatigue in this patient population.  This webinar will discuss how the most current research suggests that the generation of ATP at the cellular level in CFS patients is severly impaired.  We will discuss the evidence for mitochondrial dysfunction as well as the treatments used to improve the production of ATP in CFS patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the symptoms of CFS that suggest mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Understand basic cellular respiration and how ATP is generated
  • Identify possible tests and labs that can be ordered to help identify mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Identify treatments that are helpful for treating mitochondrial dysfunction
