I heard this guy is an ****. I read this on diverse forums.
So please, have a bit of respect, and use your mother language in a better way.
I read many such statements. From his office in Bruxel. Most of the statements I read were in French. There are a lot of them... strangely too many.
But how do you know those were really his patients? You don't. They could just be KDM haters pinged off by his research.
I personally know Sushi and Sergio and can confirm that they are Dr. De Meirleir's patients. I also know another KDM patient well, who has a good opinion of him and told me he was friendly.
I, myself, am not a patient of Dr. De Meirleir, but i think i will try to get an appointment in the next couple of months, because i don't know of many other doctors who have his experience with ME/CFS in Europe. And i need to try to get my case documented as thoroughly as possible, for legal reasons, so i'm looking for a doctor who knows how and where to find abnormalities in a ME/CFS patient.
I can also honestly tell you that my impression is that he likes to make some pretty bold statements (in videos, presentations, etc.) and that i, personally, would not necessarily believe 100% of them, before they are confirmed by solid results.
Nevertheless i don't think there are many better ME/CFS doctors around in Europe.
He is not just a "guy". He's a Professor in the university, a doctor with several specialties, and many other things, that at least, make him to deserve a more respectful treatment.
I'm just saying that it's not fair, polite nor accurate in this particular case to discredit Prof. de Meirleir the way you did. He's doing ongoing and vital work right now re: ME/CFS that will be publish soon, if and when the terrain is favorable. You are just fouling OUR own nest, and this is not very smart of you.
Don't waste energy in writing back again, please, just make us a favor and delete your first message, or at least say whatever you want to say with a better language.
