    #MEAction: Professor Anthony Komaroff

    In your opinion, what needs to be done by public health authorities to bring about better health outcomes for people suffering from ME?

    One of the greatest causes of suffering among people with ME/CFS is that some doctors, friends, family members, and employers wonder if the illness is imaginary, or fabricated. Public health authorities can help disseminate the scientific evidence that the illness has objective underlying biological abnormalities, involving the brain, autonomic nervous system, immune system and energy metabolism. They also can provide more support services for those who are homebound.
