The evidence that Chronic Lyme exists is undeniable, yet, CDC and IDSA continue to deny it.

Is it really any surprise that they're denying it?
The IDSA panel has undeniable links to the insurance industry and the CDC is suddenly concerned with "reducing health costs" (according to the new tagline on their web site).

Treating chronic lyme disease is expensive.

Two weeks of doxy is cheap, cheap, cheap.

Even Phrma has to sit on their hands because it's more lucrative for them when a person has a chronic condition that requires a lifetime of various prescription medications to "control".

Treat the symptoms. That's all our health care system is good for. Nobody is interested in CURING disease. There's no long-term money making involved in that!

Oh, another thing I have noticed about the Lyme Disease "debate" is that the doctors who practice in states where Lyme Disease is a huge problem (NY, CT, etc) are always on board with the idea that chronic Lyme exists. They've seen so many patients with problems after being treated for Lyme Disease that there's no way they could deny it.

The IDSA and the CDC want to bring out a bunch of infectious disease knuckleheads from places where 99.9% of the doctors will tell you "Lyme doesn't exist" to convince people that chronic Lyme "Doesn't exist", either.

I, for one, think the science is pretty straightforward.

Spirochete with the ability to change its morphology and move through tissue. Um, HELLO? Of course it can cause a chronic illness!

Like, major DUH.

thanks for posting this. And thanks to Dr C of NY, another hero in the fight. So many brave and smart docs. Its sad that more people have to get sick for the disease to be taken seriously.

Encouraging that some states are passing legislation to protect docs, etc. But oh it is so slow. Sometimes I hate capitalism. Any ism that is too pure become corrupt.

Its always darkest before the dawn...so lets hope to see the light soon.
