Genetics as a Potential Cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Some research suggests that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or CFS, may have a genetic component. This means that if you have relatives with CFS, you may have a higher risk of developing the condition. It’s theorized that certain genetic mutations could make a person more susceptible to environmental triggers of CFS.

However, gene doesn’t guarantee that you will get the disease. It’s likely that a combination of genetic and environmental factors leads to the development of CFS. Further research is needed to expand our understanding of the genetic factors contributing to CFS.
