Description

IDSA Guidelines for the treatment and diagnosis of Lyme Disease and other vector borne diseases FAIL the patients needs. No recommendations are given to doctors who have patients that have been diagnosed after months or years of tick borne illness. Only statement they make is that "if caught early, Lyme disease is easily treated" More people suffer from late term or chronic infection than others that were caught early. Insurance companies refuse to cover cost of prescribed treatments if the IDSA guidelines aren't followed. Patients not fully cured after 14-20 days of antibiotics are left to suffer and become further disabled by the bacteria.
