One of the biggest hurdles facing those with quinism is the current lack of knowledge about it within the medical community at large. Most of those with quinism have found that their family doctor’s and other healthcare professionals either lack knowledge of the subject, or are skeptical about it. Something that is frequently asked is “what information is there that I can/should provide to my family doctor about quinism?”
