My state of Oklahoma has reported 533 cases of lyme in dogs, but only 3 human cases since 2001. SERIOUSLY!! I know we don't even compare to the endemic northeast, but you can hardly say that it isn't here at all!! (unless you happen to be a doctor in OK) [bonk]

If they close their eyes, it's not there.

That's pretty much what they teach in most medical schools to most doctors, it seems.

It defies logic but that seems to be a common aspect in the denial of the existance of lyme disease.

I really don't think most doctors are aware of some of these facts. I don't think that the powers that be are drawing attention to these types of facts either.

The excuse for this particular fact would probably be something along the lines that dogs are much more likely to be exposed to ticks than humans because of the time they spend outdoors and the places they like to hang out.

Here in Oregon they deny that Lyme disease exists. If a person has it, they say you have to have traveled out of country or to the east coast. Most people say they traveled to Africa, and then the doctors are at least willing to test.

HOWEVER, lyme disease and erhlichiosis are reported and treated in horses, dogs, and cats.

crazy?

from my newbie package links below...


statistics...

STATISTICS ...LYME! --- IMPORTANT!! Below!!

1980 - Jan. 2008 ...all 50 states broken down by years!
http://www.lyme.org/resources/1980-cumulative.htm


Betty note: I tried printing out the chart, but it goes SIDEWAYS, and tried printing in pages 1, 2, 3; it kept printing page 1 only! So just a warning if others try to do this; use your PRINT REVIEW FIRST which I did, and indicated DIFFERENT pages, but still got page 1 only! I gave up after 8 tries! uffda [Smile]


1990--2006 of Lyme cases on the LDA website. LDA wants to make it difficult for anyone to continue to deny the impact of this disease nationwide.

I just noticed this on the LDA site, a new handy dandy tool for folks to use... (of course that is when I get done playing with it).

It is a printable map that shows the total number of reported cases of Lyme per year in each state... and the total number of cases over-all for each state. Thought it might be of help to those doing research, reports, support group meetings, etc.


2005, top 20 states in CDC STATS; fyi, IOWA no. 15%

LDA Map of Lyme Disease Case Numbers
http://lymediseaseassociation.org/Maps/usa_total.gif

The small print at the bottom says:
"Note CDC says Lyme disease is under reported and that only about 10% of cases that meet CDC surveillance criteria are actually reported to CDC. (For example, Oklahoma 362 reported cases = 3,620 probable cases meeting CDC criteria.)"

HOW TO INSTRUCTIONS for showing a physician
YOUR state's LD statistics by Nancy, HSHBMOM
http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=063621


2003 CDC Incidence map from Truthfinder/Tracy
http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/lyme/distribution_density.htm
or this ``RISK MAP'':
http://www.aldf.com/usmap.shtml


Now compare that to this map that shows the incidence of positive Lyme test results in dogs in the USA:
http://www.idexx.com/animalhealth/testkits/3dx/lymemap.htm


1996 ``CDC `` Case Definition of Lyme Disease, (Borrelia burgdorferi)
CDC's definition of an ``endemic'' county is a county with 2 confirmed cases of Lyme disease. TWO! Report yours!
