Explanation of Symptom Classification

Dr Shoemaker and the other skilled Physicians assessing and treating CIRS patients have observed a persistent set of 37 frequently occurring symptoms. In order to classify these symptoms, which are categorised into a rubric of 8, cluster analysis was employed. This assisted in taking a seemingly endless procession of subjective symptom anomalies and with recondite statistical methods, converting them into unbiased facts.

Statistically the symptoms number 37 and populate 13 clusters. These diagnostics distinguish CIRS from almost all other illnesses. An adult patient is said to have a 95% likelihood of having CIRS if they present with 8 or more clusters of symptoms. A paediatric patient requires 6 clusters of symptoms or greater to positively diagnose CIRS.

Suspected CIRS patients are diagnosed using these clusters and a published peer reviewed case definition, physical examination abnormalities, laboratory test abnormalities, NEUROQUANT abnormalities, VCS abnormalities, Nasal culture abnormalities and transcriptomic abnormalities.

The biotoxin burden is capable of causing catastrophic damage throughout the immune, hormonal, musculoskeletal, respiratory, ocular, gastrointestinal, hypothalamic, and neurological pathways.

CIRS-WDB is an entity. Mould illness exists. Now you need facts, science to back them up, and a proven treatment protocol. Imperative is finding a Physician who understands the scientific evidence supporting a diagnosis of CIRS-WDB and is prepared to follow the established, proven Shoemaker Treatment Protocol.
