CFS/ME and Exercise

People with CFS/ME do not seem to benefit from exercise, but rather the combination of exercise-induced IL-6, together with enhanced preexisting IL-6 receptors, produces extreme fatigue. Many doctors discourage CFS/ME sufferers from exercising, because the exercise-based IL-6 never reaches therapeutic levels required for muscle enhancement. These recent studies explain what people with CFS/ME have experienced -- exercise is bad for CFS/ME. Hopefully, therapy will follow the new insights.
