Energy metabolism

Abnormalities in energy metabolism and exercise intolerance are key features of myalgic encephalomyelitis, whose cardinal symptom is post-exertional malaise. (more...)


Selected article

The Energy Envelope Theory is a self-management tool to reduce symptom severity and the frequency of relapses. This theory suggests that because variations in day-to-day energy levels are often unpredictable in people with ME/CFS, they are to assess their perceived energy levels on a daily basis (or in smaller time increments, as needed) and use that level to gauge their energy expenditure for the day. It encourages people with ME/CFS to accept their daily energy limitations and not exceed or fight them. (more...)
