Normalization of leaky gut in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is accompanied by a clinical improvement
Cortisol Controls Recycling of Bile Acids
Maes M, Leunis JC.
There is now evidence that an increased translocation of LPS from gram negative bacteria with subsequent gut-derived inflammation, i.e. induction of systemic inflammation and oxidative & nitrosative stress (IO&NS), is a new pathway in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Summary: Cortisol is responsible for the recycling of bile acids from the blood, according to new research. If this recycling is disrupted, the animals develop gallstones and lose weight because they are no longer able to digest dietary fats. They also use more energy for heat production. The researchers assume that regulation of recycling serves the purpose of conserving energy efficiently in times of need.
