Diastolic Cardiomyopathy is a disorder affecting the diastolic (when the heart muscle is relaxing between contractions) function of the heart.
On Saturday, June 18th, 2005 noted Chronic Fatigue Syndrome expert Dr. Paul Cheney spoke on CFS & Diastolic Cardiomyopathy at a seminar in Irving, Texas. Paul Cheney, M.D., Ph.D. spoke on the most significant research breakthrough yet in the area of CFS — that CFS is a compensatory defense mechanism against a particular kind of heart problem that is extremely difficult to detect without proper equipment, trained technicians, and a highly knowledgeable doctor to interpret the data. Dr. Cheney’s ongoing research is confirming that CFS patients do have cardiomyopathy, specifically Diastolic Dysfunction.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), which is also sometimes referred to as Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), is a condition characterized by the primary symptom of a prolonged, persistent debilitating fatigue not relieved by rest and not directly caused by other conditions. In general, a diagnosis for CFS requires that the tiredness is severe enough for at least a 50% decrease in the patient’s ability to participate in ordinary activities. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) describes CFS as a distinct disorder with specific symptoms and physical signs, based on the exclusion of other possible causes.
