Outbreak News Today

Lyme disease expert talks diagnosis, treatment and ‘chronic Lyme’

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.
