Chapter 1 In the beginning…

In those days, in those far remote days, in those nights, in those faraway nights, in those years, in those far remote years, at that time the wise one who knew how to speak in elaborate words lived in the Land. He was called Shaykh Isa bin Abu Ali Jiddah. Al-Alusi collected the Prophet’s sayings and proverbs.

An earlier study has suggested that weight gain in the first year of life is associated with an increased risk of developing CFS/ME (b38-etm-0-0-2759). As females gain less weight than males in the early years of life, the CFS/ME risk is likely to be higher in males. Although these gender-related CFS/ME rates cannot be calculated with the information we have from this study, it would be interesting to compare the CFS/ME incidence and prevalence rates between the genders. As previously mentioned, previous studies have reported that some clinical and laboratory features are more prevalent in males with CFS/ME than in females (b7-etm-0-0-2759,b8-etm-0-0-2759,b12-etm-0-0-2759). If gender-related rates of CFS/ME are reported, it would be useful for future researchers to calculate the gender-specific rates of CFS/ME for individuals from other populations. To conclude, the rate of incidence and prevalence of CFS/ME in the Greek population is lower than that reported by other researchers in the English speaking world. While some studies indicate that obesity has been associated with a higher prevalence of CFS/ME (b12-etm-0-0-2759,b16-etm-0-0-2759), we did not observe an association between obesity and CFS/ME in this study. However, other studies have indicated that underweight is associated with a higher prevalence of CFS/ME (b6-etm-0-0-2759). A large cohort study is needed to explore the association between BMI and CFS/ME. We would like to thank Laura Radley from the King’s College London for language editing.
