These seem like well-meaning researchers.
Can someone invite them to a conference so that they can update their knowledge on GET? And/or send them some information about the PACE trial?
Actually their evidence for their statement isn't the PACE trial. Their reference is "Patient education to encourage graded exercise in chronic fatigue syndrome. 2-year follow-up of randomised controlled trial.", https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14754826, this response to the study, https://www.bmj.com/content/322/7301/1545, seems to indicate many of the usual problems with it.
Strange to use as evidence an obscure trial from 15 or more years ago.
Maybe they know PACE will no longer fly?
I suggested sending information about the PACE trial simply because it is a large trial that proves that GET doesn't 'markedly improve symptoms and activities of daily living' in people with ME/CFS.
A discussion of thyroid issues on this thread has been moved to a more relevant thread here at the poster's request.
Well most of this is over my head, so I calculated the above. That is over 10 thousand (10,920) data points per person!
