Well adrenal dysfunction is for sure with CFIDS, but not necessarily the cause of course...I have had CFS for 5yrs and it the early part came at 30 and then I was 33 by the time the checked my hormones...way out of whack...I still have low DHEA and been supplementing for a year now! It has gone up some though. Testosterone also way low...gone up some too since I been doing some natural stuff, but the shots were not for me. My libido was not suffering badly until 3.5 to 4 yrs into my CFS...now it is lower but not near as low as it was this time last year.
