Tired All the Time Test

Our tired all the time test is what you need if you are affected by myalgic encephalomyelitis, or encephalopathy (ME), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and tiredness.


According to the UK Biobank, there are over 250,000 people in England and Wales with ME/CFS, with about 2.4 times as many women affected as men though it can affect people of all ages. It is a complex, multi-system, chronic medical condition that has personal, social and economic consequences and a significant impact on a person's quality of life. Causes are unclear, but in many cases, symptoms are thought to have been triggered by an infection.


There is no a specific diagnostic test, but with our tired all the time test we will assess a variety of different bio-markers in order to understand your general health and wellbeing and to address the common causes of your fatigue.


For a broader spectrum of analysis we suggest our inflammation and infection test.
