The Lyme disease epidemic is taking its toll on patients, physicians, and the entire health care system. Many cases go undiagnosed, are misdiagnosed or are diagnosed late. In fact, chronic Lyme disease is an inaccurate medical diagnosis; it should correctly be called Lyme MSIDS (Multiple Systemic Infection Disease Syndrome).
We, as health care professionals, need to get better at diagnosing and treating Lyme and its related co-infections. We need to better understand the causes of our patients’ ills and find answers to why they don’t feel better. And we need to do it sooner rather than later, because Lyme MSIDS is the number one spreading vector-borne epidemic worldwide.
This white paper will explain why current measures of Lyme MSIDS are inadequate and what you can do about it.
