Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, director of the national Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, recommends increasing water, salt, and your overall protein intake. “Because of the adrenal hormone levels being inadequate [in some patients with CFS], people become dehydrated and need increased salt and water. The exception would be for patients with high blood pressure or heart failure,” says Dr. Teitelbaum. “Also, increasing protein intake tends to help maintain a stable blood sugar.” He recommends that a person aim to get 8 to 15 grams of salt and a gallon of water daily.
It is noted that everyone is different and that there is no “one diet fits all” even for those who suffer from CFS. It is important that you work with your health care provider to individualize your diet and treatment. What works marvelously for one person will not give any improvement to the next person.
