Over time on this radio program, I’ve had a number of Lyme disease advocates on the show discussing their positions on the various aspects of the bacterial disease (HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE ).

In an effort to offer some balance to these viewpoints, I had a discussion with the Clinical Director for the Division of Infectious Diseases and Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins,  Dr. Paul Auwaerter about several areas of interest to include diagnosis ( the CDCs two-tier Lyme disease testing process, alternative testing), treatment, chronic Lyme and Lyme literate physicians, among others.

  5. Canada has the highest number of M.S. in the world 340 /100,000 and the absolute lowest Lyme disease 3/100,000 in the world. There is the possibility of a serious misdiagnosis which needs urgent study.

  6. Marie Downes says:

    Borrelia can evade and downgrade the immune system’s response.
    Borrelia can form bio films, convert to cystic form, lay dormant avoiding both antibiotic and immune attack.
    Borrelia can form persister cells which survive antibiotic attack.
    The accuracy of the NIH studies which refute the positive effects of the use of long term antibiotics have been questioned by other scientists.
    Fatigue is an inaccurate description of the symptoms related to LD, Severe, global, muscular and cognitive energy depletion and functional incompetence, is more accurate.
    Diagnostic tests are currently not fit for purpose.
    Clinical diagnostic medicine is a dying art.
    Patients can be given an erroneous diagnosis of auto immune disease particularly if they have developed LD arthritis. They can then be given immune suppressant drugs which is catastrophic.
    I believe ignorance about LD and medical arrogance related to it will become the next medical scandal of the 21st century.
