[Not that exciting] I just read a copy of: White Peter. How exercise can help chronic fatigue syndrome. Pulse: 86-87, June 20, 1998 ------ ------- Contrast that with this paper: KY Fulcher and PD White, 'Chronic fatigue syndrome: A description of graded exercise treatment', Physiotherapy 84 (1998), pp. 223-226. (this is a May edition) -------- So in two articles published a month apart, a slightly different description is given: "stay at their current level of exercise for a further week or two" vs "they should be advised to remain at the same level for an extra week". Suggesting patients stay at it for 2 weeks is a bit easier to criticise. ----------- He also says in the article: These days, he tends to bash surveys and say that the GET wasn't generally done by a properly trained expert and so wasn't GET and so the adverse effects aren't of much relevance. But he himself was encouraging such people to offer the treatment.
