There is an article that has just been 'put out there' by "Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Infectious Diseases" www.hindawi.com/journals/ipid/2010/876450.html
"The evidence continues to mount that Chronic Lyme Disease (CLD) exists and must be addressed by the medical community if solutions are to be found. Four National Institutes of Health (NIH) trials validated the existence and severity of CLD. Despite the evidence, there are physicians who continue to deny the existence and severity of CLD, which can hinder efforts to find a solution. Recognizing CLD could facilitate efforts to avoid diagnostic delays of two years and durations of illness of 4.7 to 9 years described in the NIH trials. The risk to society of emerging antibiotic-resistant organisms should be weighed against the societal risks associated with failing to treat an emerging population saddled with CLD."
I have printed this out & intend to put this article in front of as many drs. as I can in my area.
(Sorry for the choppy wording, just had a very stressful week & not thinking so smoothly )
