    ..Rather, the clinical situation should consider that the variability in normal is greater with older age and that all diagnostic tests and care plans should be considered in the context of the patient's symptoms [5]...

    ..These results suggest that aerobic fitness and a concurrent diagnosis of FM are likely explanations for currently conflicting data and challenge ideas implicating metabolic disease in the pathogenesis of CFS. ..
