    The Beighton criteria for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, joint hypermobility type (current version) was written by 5 EDS specialists (geneticists) and 2 disease orgs

    The other criteria, the Brighton criteria (not a typo, the two definitions are called Beighton and Brighton), was written by three rheumatologists (current version). These are cited by the US Army Health Clinic in Germany

    thanks to WillowJ
    "The two criteria for fibromyalgia were written by 1) three doctors and 2) ten doctors and the professional college (American College of Rheumatology)."
