Insights into fatigue from a doctor

This was useful and interesting. Much more medical and matter-of-fect than I was expecting - I thought it would be self-help style. But that also meant there was less BS.

It was rather short though - I would have liked more practical info e.g. on eating to sustain a balanced blood sugar. But it moved very quickly through the various diagnoses.
