Why fish oils could help ME sufferers
People 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.

Researchers 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. The findings are reported in the journal Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica.
