Glucose is a simple sugar.

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

A study of skeletal muscle cell cultures from 10 subjects with CFS found blunted glucose uptake after electrical stimulation.[1]

A study of cerebral glucose metabolism in 26 patients with chronic fatigue syndrome via 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) found abnormalities in approximately half of patients.[2] A 1998 PET study also found evidence of reduced metabolism in 18 patients.[3]

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.
