Dr. Minkoff Interviewed about Chronic Fatigue Treatment
Chronic Fatigue is Misdiagnosed or Undiagnosed
Diagnosing CFS is difficult for many physicians. Doctors do not have access to reliable testing for the disease. And symptoms are similar to other conditions. Therefore, chronic fatigue syndrome treatment is hit or miss.
The CDC states that 90 percent of people with CFS have not been diagnosed. This is because there isn’t a simple test for the condition. This leaves most people not diagnosed.
As a result, a patient may be told they have any number of diseases such as:
- Lyme disease
Diagnosing CFS can be difficult. It mimics other conditions and diseases. Because of this, we test for all the potential causes.
Accurate testing helps us to determine the precise cause(s) of your exhaustion. When we can treat the cause we can have success. This is proper chronic fatigue syndrome treatment.
The causes of CFS are listed in the next section.
What Causes CFS?
Researchers believe there are a number of factors that cause CFS. We agree and find there are multiple causes.
The common culprits are:
- viral, bacterial, or parasitic infections
- Epstein-Barr virus
- some kind of a toxin burden like heavy metals, chemicals, or mold
- an unhealthy digestive system & gut microbiome
- thyroid issues
- immune conditions
- adrenal exhaustion
- hormonal imbalances
- mitochondrial dysfunction
- nutritional deficiencies
- mental stress
Best Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment Doctor
As CFS doctors, we see a lot of patients suffering from chronic fatigue.
Many chronic fatigue doctors misdiagnose it as depression. As a result, patients will be given anti-depressants to mask their symptoms.
We find that chronic fatigue is often connected to multiple health conditions.
It can also be caused by problems with the body’s energy-production system.
We know how to test and locate the underlying causes. This is a prerequisite for proper treatment. Properly treated a person can regain their energy and enjoy life.
However, left untreated chronic fatigue gets worse. And severe fatigue can make it difficult to get out of bed.
We’ve treated this condition with success for two decades. Many patients come to our chronic fatigue treatment center in Tampa Bay.
Treatment for CFS will vary depending on your specific underlying causes.

Other Health Conditions That Can Cause Fatigue
Chronic fatigue syndrome can be a symptom of other health conditions. That is why the best chronic fatigue doctors rule out other common health conditions such as:
Lyme Disease – can cause the same exact symptoms as CFS.
Thyroid Issues – thyroid hormone imbalances can lead to constant fatigue. It also creates weight gain.
Mononucleosis – Mono is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Constant fatigue is common in people with this virus.
Multiple Sclerosis – affects the central nervous system. It can lead to severe fatigue.
Hormone Imbalance – occurs in women in perimenopause or menopause. One of the first clues is feeling fatigued.
Lupus – is a chronic autoimmune disease. The body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. This can cause severe exhaustion to occur.
Fibromyalgia – causes pain & poor-quality sleep leading to exhaustion.
Adrenal Fatigue – the adrenal glands are key for energy production. Adrenal glands that are fatigued lead to general tiredness and lethargy. In severe cases, a person becomes exhausted all the time.
Anemia – Women are prone to anemia during their menstrual years. Red blood cells that carry oxygen become depleted during blood loss. This can lead to feelings of exhaustion.
