i inquired with ilads site why 08 lyme guidelines are NOT posted on their site. she had given their webmaster quite awhile ago this, but apparently was overlooked.

if you can't get it now using cut/paste above, try a little later, and you can now get their OFFICIAL ilads site.


scott forsgren has posted this elsewhere; that's how i learned it was even updated; thanks scott.

i'll note this in my welcome letter to newbies!!

Hi betty!

Thanks for this. I have found the link for you - you may have had difficulty finding it there because they haven't updated the heading date for it. (For those interested, the 3rd link down here: http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines.html )


It still says it's from "September, 2005", but if you follow the link, it's the 2008 updated Burrascano guidelines. If you hear from them again you may want to point it out so others like us might avoid confusion as well.

I never realized not one of the ILADS docs have more education than Family Physician or Internal Medicine. Perhaps that is the issue as to why IDSA gives them little credibility? Strange. I figured some former Infectious Disease docs would be on the ILADS Board.

I also didn't realize Nick Harris is a member of ILADS too!

I know experience can mean a ton. I'm just looking at this from first glance and trying to from an outsider's perspective.

Not true. There are some who were trained in infectious disease prior to becoming lyme doctors. Several treated HIV. One was on the original IDSA panel and was dismissed because he did not agree with their conclusions.

You may not know this but ILADS doctors are very involved in continuing education. They spend considerable time learning about lyme disease and co-infections.

Those who have years of training in lyme disease and co-infections and years to decades of clinical experience are training new ILADS doctors. My ILADS doctor is constantly training doctors as evidenced by how many times he has someone trailing him in his office.

You can buy DVD's of some of their conferences at www.ilads.org or
http://www.lymediseaseassociation.org/VideoView.html

There are other DVD's of conferences if you look around at individual State lyme disease organizations.

Frankly, my LLMD is one of the smartest doctors I've seen and I've seen a LOT of doctors. I've only met one other doctor in decades of seeing doctors who is anywhere close but she does not treat lyme disease.

I was a computer programmer and my husband is an engineer. We are trained in logical thinking. You usually don't find it in doctors because most use a mechanical approach to diagnosing and treating illness. From what I've seen with my own ILADS doctor and read about from others, this is not so with many ILADS doctors.

Bottom line, I"m getting better after decades of being sick with disease that should have been treated by an ID doctor but they are told not to treat and because they go along with this, I spent the majority of my life suffering with an illness that could have been treated.
