CFS and Digestive Function

CFS and Digestive Function Fatigue is a common symptom associated with a wide variety of gastrointestinal disorders, including celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).1-3 Researchers have recently uncovered a particularly strong link between chronic fatigue and IBS. In one group of 1,797 chronic fatigue sufferers, a surprising 63% were found to satisfy the diagnostic criteria for IBS.4

Mal digestion, malabsorption, and abnormal gut flora and ecology have all been linked to many conditions associated with chronic fatigue. An imbalance and/or overgrowth of yeast in the colon, for example, often follows the use of antibiotics and can be one of various triggers resulting in fatigue symptoms.
5 Treatment against Candida albicans, a potential intestinal pathogen, has also been shown effective in reducing symptoms of fatigue in sensitized patients.6

Fatigue can also be caused by inadequate digestion and malabsorption, which prevents proper nourishment from protein, carbohydrate and fiber foods and greatly diminishes the body's available supply of energy. In addition, a "leaky gut" can allow macromolecules of food and other particles to penetrate the mucosal lining of the intestine, placing added stress on the immune system, which has to work overtime to deal with these new "invaders." Over time, this can wear the body down and increase feelings of exhaustion. Take the Gut Permeability Test to determine if you have Leaky Gut.

The Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) evaluates digestion and absorption, bacterial balance and metabolism, yeast and immune status. The analysis is a useful screen for patients with systemic problems related to gastrointestinal dysfunctions, and can lead to safe and effective individualized treatment of many chronic symptoms, including fatigue.
