WOMEN MORE LIKELY TO SUFFER FROM CHRONIC FATIGUE
Matt Case - August 29th
A new study has found that women are much more likely to suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) than men. The study, conducted by DecodeME and published in the journal Nature Medicine, surveyed more than 17,000 people in the United Kingdom. Of the participants, 83% were women.
The study also found that women who have had CFS for more than 10 years are more likely to experience worse symptoms as they age. Pippa Stacey, a chronic fatigue patient and study participant, told AP News that she can no longer stand or walk for more than a few minutes at a time.
