    Interesting post in form a fb friend

    Every time I've heard Mary Dimmock speak she's been impressive:


    "CDC states that Oxford, Fukuda, Canadian and the ME-ICC “identify similar pools of patients”.

    But Fukuda does not require PEM and Oxford only requires 6 months of fatigue and allows psychiatric illness.

    Numerous studies have shown that these definitions are not all the same patients.

    Yes, ME is heterogeneous but this heterogeneity is a manufactured artifact of inappropriately combining all these diverse definitions and conditions into one clinical entity called CFS."

    I hope the CFSAC meeting will be up on Youtube. I can't read much at the moment. I need to hear it.
