Diagnosis & Treatment
Lyme disease is a Clinical Diagnosis. Not all tests for Lyme disease are accurate, but may be helpful. You may have the infection and yet your tests can be negative due to the lack of immune response to the bacteria. Your doctor will carefully go over your medical history and symptoms.
Early appropriate treatment will increase chances of eradicating the disease and may prevent you from developing chronic Lyme disease.
Peer reviewed and published Scientific Research supports that Lyme can become chronic. In some cases Lyme disease has resulted in death of the infected individual.
A physician or qualified medical practitioner diagnoses and treats Lyme disease. Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics. Antibotics may be given orally, inter-muscularly (IM) or by intravenous therapy (IV). Only a qualified medical practitioner can prescribe your course of treatment.
