Abnormal Sedimentation rates
- The rate is usually very low or zero in ME patients. This has been consistently found by Dr. Paul Cheney in his medical practice in the USA. Dr. Kommaroff of Harvard Medical School has also found this abnormality in patients. Canadian clinician Byron Hyde reported in the fall 1989 issue of his newsletter to sufferers, “To my knowledge, there are only five diseases that have a pathological low sedimentation level: myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME also called CFS), sickle-cell anemia, hereditary sperocytosis, hyper-gammaglobulinemia, hyper-fibrogenemia.”
