    This research is not explicitly about ME/CFS but I decided to put it here anyway because it's about CDR and because of the acknowledgements in the full paper:

    Hhmmm - I kind of thought most people with ME look younger then their age, which would be the opposite of the hypothesis.

    I look considerably younger than my age but I've always assumed that that was because of lack of UV exposure, because I have been mostly housebound for decades. In terms of stuff going wrong with bits of me, I seem to be right on target, age-wise!

    no hypothesis... this applies to everyone, i understand.
    different parts age in different speed, due to disease not fully healed ... or something like that.

    perhaps, such findings can one day prevent diseases.

    Me too

    Well actually I look like a wizened old fart ..so I think when it comes to looking younger than your age I am clearly the exception

    In fact I seem to remember in my 20’s and 30’s everyone always used to mistake me for 5-10 years younger and I used to smile and reveal my age to their surprise.

    Now though ..it’s the opposite ...grey and balding (including eyebrows..don’t know what happened to the ends) which is severely limiting my Bond girl work ..it’s all but dried up...now i would be lucky to get an incontinence pants advert ...sigh
