Fatigue in NF1?

New study shows an increase in perceived fatigue in children and young adults with Neurofibromatosis Type 1.

Article: Study Shows More Fatigue in Neurofibromatosis Type 1

An interesting article was just published in the Journal of Paediatric and Child Health called “Perceived fatigue in children and young adults with neurofibromatosis type 1”.

This was a small study done in the United Kingdom that compared 75 children with neurofibromatosis type 1 to their 16 unaffected siblings to determine if fatigue was more prevalent in children with NF1. The study shows a presence of perceived fatigue in children and young adults with NF1. This is just one study, but it demonstrates that more research is needed to look at fatigue and NF1 and what factors might be contributing to the fatigue.

Note: This does not mean all children with NF demonstrate increased fatigue.

  • I have nf1 I’m 64 years and it bothers me I have a low energy level. I will work in my yard for a few hours and take a break but it’s difficult to get my energy back. I take care of myself and take vitamins every day. I was also diagnosed with prostate cancer and had my prostate removed. It has been 2 years. I still have low energy. I have been seen regularly by my doctor. I need so answers please 😩
