I'm far from an expert on DCS, but it seems to me there's a kind of "uncertainty principle" here. If the symptoms are measurable, then by definition they are not subclinical. Conversely, if the symptoms amount to general and temproary fatigue, how can you pinpoint the cause(s).
From personal experience, I found that switching to a drysuit resulted in significantly less fatigue at the end of the day (more so than nitrox). Is that because I use less energy staying warm or because I'm warmer and off-gas more efficiently? Who knows -- I'd guess it's a combination of the two but there's no way to prove it for sure.
