The gut is a widely discussed topic in relation to ME/CFS – whether it be regarding more reported gastrointestinal symptoms amongst those with ME/CFS, or key theories related to the involvement of the gut in the development of the disease.
In case you missed them, here are links to a few of our articles on the gut:
- Gut bacteria associated with anti-inflammatory processes are found to be reduced in ME/CFS
- ME/CFS is linked to altered immune responses and a leaky gut
- Individuals with ME/CFS have higher levels of gut symptoms in relation to healthy controls
Furthermore, as recently announced, ME Research UK is funding research led by Prof. Simon Carding at the Quadram Institute investigating the role of gut viruses in the development of ME/CFS.
