Fatigue treatment today
Today there is no consensus for optimal fatigue treatment in the world. There is no consensus on how to prevent or alleviate fatigue. Most individuals with chronic fatigue or disability will become less physically active. This may lead to a cycle of deconditioning of multiple physiological systems. Patients undergoing treatment for cancer are often advised to limit their activity and get enough rest. These strategies may be effective in acute situations of fatigue. However, if you are suffering from more chronic fatigue rest will result in deconditioning and probably increased fatigue. So to much rest is not optimal for fatigue treatment.
Furthermore, pharmacotherapy of fatigue and asthenia in cancer patients has not produced convincing scientific results.
