I'm not sure what to think of this. When he found that fatigue tracked leptin levels in ME/CFS (and the same I think for fibromyalgia) it looked like a promising and potentially specific link. But if all sorts of hormones also track (negatively in this case) symptoms are we getting closer to or further away from identifying the central mechanisms(s)?
ETA - Younger isn't claiming that these sex hormones are the central problem but that they modulate pain levels.

Jarred had released his video on this study
I am so glad he summarized their findings in ca. 10min - good to follow.
