fish oils could help ME sufferers
severely ill with ME have a chemical imbalance in the brain which
could be remedied by taking fish oil supplements, say doctors.
Research involving sophisticated scans suggests sufferers' brains
are being flooded with a chemical that could trigger mental and
physical problems. The study confirms research carried out more
than a decade ago which found fish oil supplements helped reverse
some symptoms. ME, or chronic fatigue syndrome, affects almost
250,000 people in Britain, causing overwhelming fatigue, muscle
pain and memory loss.
led by Dr Basant Puri, from Hammersmith Hospital, West London,
compared brain functioning of eight sufferers with that of eight
volunteers without the condition. They found that the brains of
chronic fatigue sufferers had higher levels of the chemical choline,
which controls fat levels and nerve transmission, compared with
creatine, which provides energy. Flooding the brain with choline
interferes with its ability to process fats essential to the proper
working of cell membranes. The fatty acid EPA, found in fish oil
supplements, could re-establish a normal pattern of chemical activity.
findings are reported in the journal Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica.
