Ciguatera and ME/CFS

Neurotoxin discovered in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The National CFIDS Foundation recently issued exciting news about research into ciguatera, which is a form of poisoning you can get from eating tropical fish.

In the study, Dr. Yoshitsugi Hokama used a newly developed blood test to look for ciguatera toxin in people with CFS, cancer, and liver disease, and compare them to people who have actually been diagnosed with ciguatera poisoning as well as healthy people. The toxin was found in the blood of all 26 CFS patients. In fact the patients with CFS had some of the highest levels in the study.

The National CFIDS Foundation press release appears in 2003 Issue 1 of Talking Point.
