Danish study finds patients with ME/CFS have the lowest health-related quality of life of 21 conditions looked at
Published July 6, 2015 @ plosone:
The study provides the first Danish EQ-5D-3L preference scores for ME/CFS patients as well as the newest EQ-5D-3L estimates for use internationally in health economics, health-care planning and research. It is found that ME/CFS in this study has a major impact on the patients’ HRQoL. In conclusion, the EQ-5D-3L-based HRQoL of ME/CFS is significantly lower than the population mean.
In fact, the ME/CFS HRQoL in this study was the lowest of all the compared conditions in both the unadjusted analysis and in the adjusted regression analysis.
My conclusion: so basically this study confirms that CBT and GET are at best totally useless and that it's more than time that we get proper medication / treatment which is what patients have been saying for decades.
