Q&A with Dr. Mark Pimentel: Believing IBS is a disease of ‘nervous, anxious women’ is ‘antiquated’ and ‘wrong’

    Some of you may have heard about Dr. Pimentel. He's done some great things for IBS sufferers and is a good example of a doctor who cares.
    Link to the interview

    It's worth a read. Basically he's saying that physicians are about 10-20 years behind the current research.. Very similar problems to ME/CFS.

    Interesting interview. I would hope re: the training video mentioned that obvious misogyny would be obvious, and that it wasn't just evident to Pimentel. I was kind of hoping he would give an outline of what current research is showing and save me the effort of finding out.
