"The Iowa legislature has voted to let Iowa doctors prescribe more aggressive treatment for Lyme Disease than is currently allowed by the state’s Board of Medicine, but the state’s medical community opposes the move."
"The Iowa Medical Society and other groups representing physicians oppose the bill. The mainstream medical consensus is there’s no data indicating antibiotics should be prescribed long-term as treatment for Lyme Disease and no evidence Lyme Disease can become a chronic condition. However, the bill representing the opposing view won unanimous support in the Iowa House a week ago and the Senate yesterday."
"“This bill is about
freedom of choice and access for Lyme patients and freedom for medical providers to work with their patients, to look at the options and provide them with the best treatment possible without fear of discipline,” Salmon said.
In 2010, lawmakers in Minnesota passed a moratorium on disciplinary action against doctors who aggressively treat Lyme Disease. The Iowa legislature’s bill now awaits review by Governor Branstad. It would still allow the Board of Medicine to review cases in which patients with Lyme Disease die or are seriously injured by treatment."
