Davis gave an update around Christmas time, where the main message was that they need to develop a better measurement technique to confirm that the metabolic trap hypothesis is valid.

I think the trap is there, too many others are thinking the same thing and replicating it in smaller studies...

I agree. I think it seems very plausible that some of us get stuck in a metabolic state which promotes the illness. Unfortunately the devil is in the details and I'm not convinced the particular trap that Robert Phair found is the one causing the problem.

I tend to agree but I think the researchers are in the right area. Dr Gordon Broderick's is closer and it's been replicated in other studies more recently. His makes sense because it is upstream of stress hormones.

I don’t think any irritation or frustration with the pace of research and disclosure should be directed to any of the researchers or organizations. I think it should be directed at the NIH. Of course we won’t see results until the research funding multiplies x10 or more. It’s useless to watch the research like a hawk and wait at this pace for paradigm-shifting discoveries. The researchers are all making valiant efforts but they will not do much at this pace. I am not currently well enough to be involved in advocacy or activism but I swear that if I ever improve even enough to do some things that all my energy will go toward that. Focusing on picking apart the already scant research desperately looking for a crumb that might help us seems way more of a waste of time than directly demanding results , even if the latter seems hard, it’s the only thing that’s ever changed anything
